FM 1053 reopens


FM 1053 has reopened between FM 11 and FM 1450.

The road was closed last Friday (Sept. 21) because, according to TxDOT:

"Rain washed out some of the slope in a different area (from last week's subsidence). We are erring on the side of caution until repairs can be made."

TxDOT Spokesman Gene Powell Jr. reported the road reopened at about 1:15 p.m. today.

The closure was the second in as many weeks due to rain and runoff undermining the soil underneath the roadway.
