FM3097 Traffic Switch Monday and Ralph Hall Parkway closes

(ROCKWALL, TX – March 3, 2017) Weather permitting, traffic will be switched on FM 3097 (Horizon Road) between 9 p.m. Monday and 5 a.m. Tuesday necessitating various lane closures between FM 740 (Ridge Road) and Rockwall Parkway. Traffic will be channeled onto new northbound pavement in order to build the next phase of construction for the future southbound lanes.

After traffic is moved over, the west side of the intersection at Ralph Hall Parkway will be closed for 30 days in order to rebuild that intersection. Portable changeable message boards have been placed to inform the traveling public of this closure.

This is part of the project to reconstruct and widen Horizon Road to four lanes between Tubbs Road and FM 740.

Backups could occur and motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes.
