overpass 315

Crews install overhead beams on a new overpass being built at Texas 315 and the Carthage Loop.

Editor's Note: TxDOT announced June 10 that this road closure has been postponed.

Texas 315 at the Carthage Loop will be closed to through-traffic on June 14, the Texas Department of Transportation announced.

Traffic to and from downtown Carthage will be affected. Traffic on the Loop will not be altered. The road will be closed from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or until work is completed. One lane of traffic will be open in each direction each night through the intersection.

The road closure is again due to crews placing overpass beams across the highway. Beam placement started Tuesday but was delayed because of inclement weather, TxDOT said.
