TxDOT Traffic Switch SH 121/SH 5 (Race Trac Detour)

The following details and detour exhibit have been provided by TxDOT and therefore any questions  should be directed to Project Manager Michael Hudek at Michael.Hudek@txdot.gov

The City has been notified by TxDOT of a planned traffic shift that will take place later this week (weather permitting) at the intersection of SH 121 and South SH 5 near Race Trac. TxDOT’s contractor, Lone Star Civil Construction, will be performing the traffic shift  from Wednesday, February 13 at 9:00 a.m. to Saturday, February 16 at 5:00 p.m., weather permitting.

What is being done:
This traffic switch is to complete the remaining concrete paving at this intersection that cannot be performed during normal traffic operations. We will be setting up message boards on Northbound and Southbound SH 121 to remind traffic of the upcoming traffic switch. 

Northbound traffic on SH 5 will be temporarily detoured to the new concrete paving at CR 338 up to Northbound SH 121. From there, they can go their normal routes. Southbound SH 121 traffic wanting to go South on SH 5 will be detoured to US 75 Southbound and exit at FM 543 (Laud Howell)  and go East to SH 5.
