Both directions of FM 1171 have been shut down just west of the Hwy 377 intersection for railroad construction, according to the town of Flower Mound.
The closure is expected to last until Saturday evening, according to a news release from the town. Construction crews have been conducting maintenance up and down the railroad in the area lately, and a similar closure is expected Friday through Sunday on Crawford Road in Argyle.
A detour route has been set up to take drivers across the railroad via Canyon Falls Drive, but drivers should expect delays and avoid the area if possible.
1171/Cross Timbers west of 377 will be closed through late tomorrow (10/22) at the railroad crossing. East and Westbound lanes affected. Seek alternate routes to bypass this area. pic.twitter.com/vDGLKSDAjX
