A couple of Bowie County roadways will close for some work at railroad crossings this weekend weather permitting.

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, the Union Pacific Railroad will be conducting maintenance work on two railroad crossings in Bowie County on Saturday and Sunday, requiring the roadways at each location to be closed for most of the day. On Saturday, the crossing at FM 991 South (Red River Road) in Redwater will be closed and on Sunday, at FM 989 (Kings Highway) between US 67 and US 59 in Texarkana.

In Redwater, traffic will be detoured on Church and Short Streets. In Texarkana, traffic will be detoured on US 59, I-369 and US 67. Detoured routes will be signed.

The construction schedule and road closures can change due to inclement weather or other unforeseen problems.

Anyone having any questions about the lane closures, detour routes or construction work can call the Texas Department of Transportation Traffic section at 903-799-1484 for more information.
