Two upper level waves will interact with a warm and very moist air mass to generate thunderstorms through Saturday. Lightning and torrential rainfall that could cause flash flooding are the primary threats...with a secondary threat of damaging winds. Turn around, don't drown!
PARIS, TX-- Residents can expect delays and closures starting Wednesday, while contractors repair bridge beams at two locations on Loop 286.
TxDOT says the first location at Loop 286, just west of the North Main/Loop 286 intersection, will close the westbound ramp onto the loop and one lane of the loop.
The second location will be the overpass at the intersection of Loop 286 and U.S 271/North Main--affecting southbound traffic.
The repairs will require the closing of traffic lanes during the day, but they will reopen at night. Repairs could take up to two weeks.
