SHERMAN, Texas -- If you drive along FM 691 (Grayson Drive), here's a reminder that temporary lane closures will begin Tuesday for construction.

Workers will begin the process of widening the two-lane roadway to five lanes from U.S. 75 west to FM 131 (Loy Lake Road). The Texas Department of Transportation said motorists on this 0.7-mile route should expect temporary one-lane closures as the $8.2 million project proceeds.

The intersection of FM 691 and FM 130 will temporarily be converted to a four-way stop. TxDOT said there are plans to install a stop light there to help the flow of traffic.

The widening project is expected to be complete by October.
