Traffic on the “Mile-Long Bridge” on U.S. Highway 180 bridge over Hubbard Creek Lake will be reduced to one lane next week, as the Texas Department of Transportation begins maintenance and repair work on the bridge.

Beginning Monday, April 1, traffic control will include daytime flaggers assisting motorists as the project work begins.

Traffic will be reduced to one lane as crews continue to repair the bridge structure and perform maintenance work on the roadway. On April 22, traffic signals will be placed at each end of the construction zone, and there will be up to a 6-minute delay for travelers. TxDOT reminds motorists to drive with caution in the construction area, where speed limits are reduced.

According TxDOT’s Project Tracker, the project will be to “clean and patch spall and cracks, rehab exterior pan girders (and) address steel paint issues.”
