On Monday, June 4, weather permitting; the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) contractor will temporarily close Old Colony Road at SH 19. A signed detour will be in place to direct traffic to each side of Old Colony Road. This closure will allow the contractor to rebuild Old Colony Rd on both the east and west sides of SH 19 and construct the SH 19 proposed northbound main lanes. This closure is expected to last three weeks.
This is part of the $14.3 million dollar construction project contracted to Smith & Company, out of Conroe, Texas. The completed project will consist of four lane highway improvements on SH 19, including exit and entrance ramps from IH 45 north to SH 30. The project has an expected completion date of Summer of 2013.
