The closure is expected to last about three weeks, depending on the weather. The closure is part of the original plans to rebuild FM 1417 presented during the public hearing process and is necessary to complete work at the intersection of Cypress Grove and FM 1417, officials said.
Westbound motorists on Canyon Creek Drive who wish to access FM 1417 can turn left onto Monte Cristo Drive, then turn right onto Lamberth Road, then continue onto FM 1417 to reach their destinations.
Motorists on FM 1417 wanting to access Canyon Creek Drive should turn east on Lamberth Road and then turn left on Canyon Creek Drive, officials said.
Transit traffic on FM 1417 will not be affected by the closure, officials noted.
Travelers to this area are advised to watch for road crews, expect delays and plan their trips in advance while this closure is in effect. This construction and any necessary temporary lane closures it creates are subject to weather or other unforeseen circumstances, officials said.
Motorists who travel frequently in this area are asked to pay particular attention to all barricades, traffic controls and signs, and to reduce their speed when approaching and crossing work zones. They must also be prepared for rough pavement and brief traffic delays, and should avoid distractions such as cell phones, eating, drinking, or car audio or navigation systems.
