Morris Lane and Robin Lane remain closed to through traffic while Texarkana, Texas, Public Works Department continues work on a street construction project to provide a thoroughfare from Richmond Road to Summerhill Road.

Mashell Daniel, Texarkana, Texas, design engineer, said traffic is one way going east on Morris from Richmond and one way from Morris heading north on Robin.

No turns are permitted from Moores Lane southbound onto Robin Lane.

“It is best for residents to use an alternate route, excepting homeowners” on Morris between Robin and Cowhorn Creek Road, Daniel said. “Residents in that area can use the completed section of Morris to get to their homes.”

“It is crucial at this point in the project that drivers are aware of the road closures and pay attention to traffic routes to keep other drivers and construction workers safe in the work zones,” Daniel said.

This project is scheduled for completion by the end of September.
