Mt. Vernon Eastbound I-30 Traffic to be Detoured Sunday

Jul 30, 2019

On Sunday, August 4, Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) crews will be replacing a message board on an overhead sign bridge on I-30 eastbound near the Franklin and Titus County Line. This will require the main traffic lanes on I-30 eastbound to be closed between 7 a.m. and noon, or until work is completed.

Traffic will be detoured onto the frontage road at Exit 150 (Ripley Rd) east of Mt. Vernon and directed back onto I-30 at entrance 153 (Spur 185 in Winfield, Millers Cove). Stop signs on the frontage road will be covered and flaggers will be used to direct traffic through the intersections for better traffic flow.
