A sections of a busy Texarkana roadway will be closed this weekend due to some construction.

The Texas Department of Transportation says a section of McKnight Road will be closed from around 8PM Friday night to around 8PM Sunday.

Officials say workers will be replacing cross culverts, which will require closing the roadway to through traffic. McKnight will be closed from just west of Gin Road. Traffic will be allowed on either side of the roadwork, but will not be able to pass through.

The official detour route will be on Richmond Road and Pleasant Grove Road, but local traffic may find alternate routes they find more convenient.

Anyone having any questions about the road closure or work can call the Texas Department of Transportation Texarkana area office at 903-838-8574 for more information.
