SULPHUR SPRINGS - Heavy rains this past week washed out the bridge at the Cross Timber Creek crossing on FM 69 near Dike.
The shutdown of the creek crossing cuts off the most direct route from Interstate 30 and the Mahoney community to the Dike area.
According to the Texas Department of Transportation Paris District Office the bridge closure is expected to last through the week of Feb. 13. A detour is being established that will re-route FM 69 traffic around the bridge via FM 1537, FM 3236, and FM 71.
The Cross Timber Creek crossing is located approximately four miles north of FM 1537.
