SHERMAN, TX -- Drivers in Sherman still have several months before a big road closure.

A second bridge is being added at Loy Lake Road to widen traffic over Highway 75 to 4 lanes. Contractor Ragle Inc. has already started putting in some piers for the new bridge, which will carry northbound traffic.

TxDOT told KTEN at a public meeting with posters of the project at the Sherman Municipal Building that the current one won't be shut down for a while.

"We're probably looking at sometime late summer in September we'll have to close it for a little while, maybe a month or so, but when we do, we'll make sure the public is very familiar with the detour routes," says TxDOT public information officer Ryan LaFontaine.

The owner of the Sherman Commons shopping center which includes Academy, United Commercial Realty, put in $1.3 million out of the total price tag of $5.6 million.

The project should be complete by next May.
