Texas Pacífico Railroad to conduct maintenance Jan. 4 - 6; travelers should anticipate delays

COLEMAN – TxDOT has scheduled a lane reduction on Farm to Market Road 503 at the Texas Pacífico Railroad (TXPF) crossing just south of Valera in Coleman County from Wednesday, Jan. 4 through Friday, Jan. 6, 2017.

During this time period, traffic will be reduced to one lane as TXPF crews perform maintenance upgrades to the railroad crossing, including the installation of new concrete rail planks across FM 503.

Traffic control will be set up to allow only one direction of traffic to pass at a time. Drivers should slow down and use caution in this area. Motorists are reminded that traffic fines are doubled in work zones while workers are present.

The dates and times of the scheduled closure are subject to change based on weather conditions. Updates will be communicated as needed via news releases and on the TxDOT Brownwood .

TxDOT’s Brownwood District includes Brown, Coleman, Comanche, Eastland, Lampasas, McCulloch, Mills, San Saba and Stephens counties.
