Media Alert: SPUR 280 ROAD CLOSURES BEGIN SEPTEMBER 19, 2018

FORT WORTH, Texas – Weather permitting, Spur 280 Westbound (WB) will be closed beginning Wednesday, September 19 at 9 a.m., through Tuesday, October 9 at 5 a.m., while the Eastbound (EB) portion of the highway will be closed between Friday, September 21 at 8 p.m., and Monday, September 24 at 5 a.m.

Out of an abundance of caution, the highway closures are taking place to ensure the safety of both drivers and the construction crews beneath Spur 280 during the construction of a railroad bridge below the traffic flyover as well as construction activity occurring on the WB Spur 280 Bridge.  Traffic will be detoured:

WB or into downtown Fort Worth:

I-30 to the Lancaster or Henderson exits
I-35 to the Belknap exit (Belknap will be closed overnight due to I-35 construction, requiring motorists to use I-30 during the overnight hours)
EB or out of downtown Fort Worth

I-30 enter from either Lancaster or Henderson
I-35 enter from Weatherford
The Spur 280 road closures are part of the TEXRail project, the new 27-mile commuter rail line that will extend from Downtown Fort Worth, across northeast Tarrant County, through North Richland Hills and Grapevine, and into Dallas Fort Worth International Airport’s Terminal B.  The line is scheduled to begin service in January 2019.

Rail Safety Tips

• The area around railroad tracks is private property. Standing on or near tracks is dangerous – and illegal.

• Trains can be at least three feet wider than the tracks. Anyone or anything in that area could be in harm’s way.

• Stay alert around railroad tracks. Some trains are very quiet and you won’t hear them coming. Using earbuds or texting can be a deadly distraction.

• Trains can come at any time on any track from any direction. It is never safe to walk on train tracks.

• Never assume a train can stop quickly. A freight train takes a mile to stop. That’s the same distance as 18 football fields.

• Trains move very quickly. The one way to stay safe is to never be on the tracks.

• Even if a train is stopped, it can move unexpectedly. It is never safe to be on or near a stopped train.

• If a car is on the tracks, a train cannot swerve to avoid it. If your car is stuck or stalled, get out of the car and move away from the tracks.

• Heed warning signs around railroad tracks. If you see a gate come down or red lights flashing, you need to stop. Even if you don’t see or hear a train, one is coming. Never try to “beat” a train.

• If you encounter a problem at a railroad crossing, look for the blue sign. It has an emergency phone number and a numerical code to identify the specific location.
