With construction of FM 1187 reaching the halfway point, traffic will be switched to the newly constructed lanes on the east side of the roadway beginning at approximately 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 2, 2013, according to officials with TxDOT and McMahon Construction. The actual switchover could cause some minor delays over a four- hour period from 8 p.m. to midnight, as vehicles are diverted onto the new concrete. In addition, West Oak St. will be closed, and both East Oak St. and Underwood Rd. will reopen for traffic. Access to all businesses will remain available with directional signs posted as crews work to build the new concrete lanes on the west side of FM 1187. Upon completion, FM 1187 will be a four lane divided highway with a median, curbs, gutters, sidewalks and landscaping.

The site will be The CH Collins Athletic Complex, 1500 Long Dr. in Denton.
