The Texas Department of Transportation will close Farm-to-Market 3046 the first or second week of September so that box culvert construction can be completed for the South bypass. TxDOT expects the construction to take 60 days.

The road closure will create a need to reroute parent dropoff and pickup at Martin Walker Elementary for the first semester of the school year.

To assist with the traffic flow, Miranda Avenue will become a one-way street between Henry and Patricia Street during the hours of 7 a.m. and 4 p.m. on days when school is in session. Signs are already in place. For more information, call Eddie Wilson at 254-547-8222, ext. 6951.

Contact Alexandra Cole at or (254) 501-7470.
