TxDOT will close FM 550 between FM 740 and Rabbit Ridge to through traffic starting Monday morning, June 10, through the end of the year.
FM 550 will be open for local traffic between FM 740 and Berkshire Drive, and between Rabbit Ridge/McDonald and Brentwood Drive. The closure is required to reconstruct the FM 550 Buffalo Creek Bridge. Officially, the detour route is FM 549 to SH 205 to FM 550. However, it is anticipated that Rabbit Ridge will become heavily traveled as a local detour route.
