Hickory Creek Road is expected to be closed down on Wednesday night for repairs and guardrail installation, according to Denton County.

In early January, two teen brothers — Diego and Daniel Rivera — died in a car crash when their vehicle went off the road into Hickory Creek. After the accident, Denton County officials announced that improvements would be made to the road, including asphalt repairs and the installation of guardrails along the road within the county limits.

The road will be closed for about two weeks from Fm 1830 to Riverpass Drive for the road work. Dawn Cobb, spokeswoman for the county government, said the road is expected to be closed on Wednesday night, but it is contingent on the weather and there is rain in the midweek forecast, so the timing could change.
