Railroad Crossing Closure Update

Motorists who normally travel FM 74 in Queen City will need to find an alternate route on Thursday, May 4. Union Pacific Railroad will be closing the highway to through-traffic on this date to make repairs to the railroad crossing.
Traffic will officially be detoured on a signed route through Atlanta on Loop 236, US 59, FM 249, FM 251 and FM 785. Trucks must use the official detour route, but other motorists may use local routes they find more convenient. Portable message boards have been placed near the railroad crossing beforehand to warn motorists of the scheduled road closure. The construction schedule and road closure can change due to inclement weather or other unforeseen problems.
Anyone having any questions about the road closure, detour routes or construction work can call the Texas Department of Transportation Linden maintenance section at 903-756-7118 <(903)%20756-7118> for more information.
