SH 121 at SH 183 to Close Overnight on Friday, October 7 and Friday, October 21

Detour signs and police to help route traffic around closures

Bedford, Texas – State Highway 121 at the SH 183 merge will be temporarily closed this weekend as crews continue construction of the new Murphy Drive bridge in Bedford.

Northbound and southbound SH 121 will close in separate phases beginning

Friday, October 7, at 11 p.m., and ending Saturday, October 8 at 10 a.m. This closure will repeat again on Friday, October 21, at 9 p.m., and end on Saturday, October 22 at 10 a.m.

Traffic will be rerouted either along frontage roads or through local streets (see attached maps). Extensive detour signs and police will be in place to help drivers navigate the overnight closures.

“We made substantial progress on the Murphy Drive bridge construction last weekend and re-opened the highway ahead of schedule,” said Lara Kohl, public relations manager with Bluebonnet Contractors, the construction contractor in charge of the work. “We anticipate the work going as smoothly during the next two closures, and we will continue to work with the police and our traffic management teams in ensuring the safety of drivers through that area.”

The work is being done in the overnight hours to lessen the impact on traffic, Kohl added. If needed, the closures may take place Saturday night as well.
