CR 2171 to Close for Bridge Replacement

County Road 2171 (Willingham Road) will be closed for about four months beginning Thursday, May 16, 2019, for a bridge replacement.

East Texas Bridge, Inc., under contract with the Texas Department of Transportation, will be replacing the existing bridge structure with a new box culvert structure, located just south of the Whitehouse city limits.

Work on this project is anticipated to last about four months, depending upon weather, Smith County Engineer Frank Davis said. 

The road will be closed to through traffic so drivers need to seek alternate routes while construction is underway. 

This project is part of the Federal Off-System Bridge Program administered through TxDOT.
