Contractors continue work on bridges in the Ballinger area.
More permanent restrictions are now in place on the Colorado River bridge on U.S. Highway 67, as traffic is shifted to the northbound lanes of U.S. 67. One lane will travel northbound and one lane will travel southbound. This shift will take place for an extended period of time as work is done to rehabilitate the northbound lanes.
Longer term restrictions are also in place on the Elm Creek and Railroad bridges on the east side of Ballinger. Traffic in both directions has been shifted to the southbound lanes of U.S. 83 with one lane traveling in each direction. Speed reductions have been added in the area. Motorists are urged to slow down, observe the posted speeds in the work zones, and use extra caution.
