Atmos Energy is working to relocate utility lines in Town, which may impact motorists who travel near the intersection of FM 2499 and FM 1171. This project, which is expected to last approximately three weeks, weather depending, will result in the following turn lane closures:
- Eastbound FM 1171 far right lane to southbound FM 2499
- Northbound FM 2499 turn lane to eastbound FM 1171
- Southbound FM 2499 turn lane to Kroger Shopping Center at FM 117
This utility relocation project is the start of a larger improvement project which will add a designated right turn lane from eastbound FM 1171 to southbound FM 2499. In an attempt to minimize the impact to commuters during rush hours, crews will be on site from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. during the duration of the project, excluding the turn lanes ONLY during the final stage of construction, which may need to be closed for a few days. Please expect delays, and if possible avoid the area until the utility relocation is complete.
