PALO PINTO COUNTY – Southbound US 281 will be temporarily shifted onto the northbound US 281 bridge at the Brazos River bridge north of I-20 for routine maintenance activities Monday and Tuesday, November 6 and 7. One lane will be open in each direction.

TxDOT encourages attention to all warning signs within the work zone as crews complete this project as quickly and safely as possible.


In 2021, 244 workers and road users were killed in work zones. The leading causes – speeding and driver inattention – are entirely preventable. Protect workers. Protect road users.

The Texas Department of Transportation is responsible for maintaining 80,000 miles of road and for supporting aviation, maritime, rail and public transportation across the state.
