State Highway 5 in Fairview between FM 1378 (Country Club Road) and FM 2786 (Stacy Road) will be closed to through traffic for approximately six months to reconstruct and re-align SH 5, beginning Tuesday, May 21.
The project will straighten sharp curves at the old railroad underpass just south of Country Club Road.
— Southbound SH 5 traffic will detour east on Country Club Road to westbound Stacy Road back to SH 5.
— Northbound SH 5 traffic will detour east on Stacy Road to northbound Country Club Road back to SH 5.
Changeable message signs have been placed in advance to make the public aware of the closure. Signs will be placed where the detours begin and route markers will be installed along the detour roadways to guide traffic.
Road conditions and traffic updates are available on drivetexas.org, dfwtraffic.org, facebook.com/txdot and twitter.com/txdot or twitter.com/txdotdallaspio
