Smith County Commissioners have approved the closure of the FM 849 bridge over Interstate 20 to be closed to allow Texas Department of Transportation to replace the bridge according to the Tyler Morning Telegraph.

No official date has been set as of yet for the work to be done. However, once started, the project will take about nine months.

For those who use FM 849 from Hideaway to reach Hwy 110 North will need to find an alternate route.

Once a date is set, we will let you know. Be prepared for a delay in your commute however.
