As work continues on the “Mile-Long Bridge” over Hubbard Creek Lake on U.S. Highway 180, west of Breckenridge, construction crews set up temporary traffic lights, which should be working beginning tonight, Monday, April 29, according to Lisa Tipton, the Public Information Officer with the Brownwood office of the Texas Department of Transportation spokesperson.

The temporary traffic signals are set up at each end of the work zone, which is reduced to one lane. Motorists should plan for delays of up to 6 minutes as they travel through the work zone.

The road work will be done as permitted by the weather, Tipton said. Every day for the next seven days has a chance of rain, ranging from 20 to 60 percent, based on forecasts from the National Weather Service.
