Rain in the forecast for this weekend has prompted the Texas Department of Transportation to postpone some construction on McKnight Road in Texarkana.

TxDOT had planned to close a portion of the roadway beginning just east near Gin Road. The work had been planned from around 8PM Friday evening to around 6AM Monday morning to replace cross culverts.

However, with a better than average chance for showers and thunderstorms in the forecast for both Friday and Saturday, officials decided to delay this part of the work till a later time.

If you have any questions about this construction project you can call the Texas Department of Transportation, Texarkana Office at 903-838-8574.
