Wednesday and Thursday are Weather Aware days due to the potential for locally heavy rainfall. Beware of flooded road-ways and never drive around barricades or into water more than six inches deep. High rainfall rates may reduce visibility and also increase the risk of hydroplaning. Turn around, don’t drown! Isolated strong thunderstorms may develop late Wednesday afternoon, but widespread severe weather does not appear to be likely at this time.
POTTSBORO, TX-Just a day before the grand opening of a Pottsboro grocery store, officials remind you to be mindful of roadwork on State Highway 289.
TxDOT's Tray Turner said paving will continue as scheduled north of Brookshire's Wednesday. They'll close down one lane of 289, starting from Spur 316 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Pottsboro City Manager Kevin Farley said they're expecting hundreds of people to attend Brookshire's grand opening, that's why they opened the new city street north of the store to help ease traffic.
Turner said TxDOT will start repaving in front of Brookshire's mid-next week.
