The Texas Department of Transportation has issued some additional information regarding the road work that is scheduled to begin on Monday, April 1, on the “Mile-Long Bridge” over Hubbard Creek Lake on U.S. Highway 180.

According to TxDOT, this project is a continuation of the work that was started last year. TxDOT took a “seasonal pause” in November to avoid potential problems caused by winter weather.

Additional work has also been added to the project, including some railings north of Snake Den. Later this summer, a seal coat will be applied and expansion joints cleaned and sealed to enhance preservation of the structure.

Beginning April 1, the first phase of traffic control will involve traffic alternating within one lane and daytime-only lane closures; flaggers will be present to assist motorists.

Phase two will begin around April 22, and will involve alternating directions of traffic in a signal-controlled, alternating, shared single lane. That portion of the work will involve 6-minute, cycled waits in place 24 hours a day.

Phase three of the work, estimated to begin near the end of July, will revert traffic control back to daily lane closures with flagger assistance until the project is complete. Weather permitting, work associated with this project is expected to wrap up by the end of November.

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.”
