Today Highway 736 north of DeBolt has reopened. Updates will continue to be provided periodically through our website and social media networks as new roads reopen.
Many surface hazards have been addressed and are being repaired. It is anticipated that most road repairs will be completed in one to two weeks. A few areas have sustained serious damages and will remain marked as hazards with signage so that drivers are aware. Long term repairs for these areas will be scheduled throughout the 2018 construction season.
New sinkholes have started to appear now that the flood waters have subsided and the ground settles.
