PHARR – The Texas Department of Transportation announces that a section of Minnesota Road in Pharr, TX will close down for a few days while a storm drain system along the road is installed. The road will be closed between Sugar Road and North Cage Boulevard. IOC Company, a TxDOT contractor, will be installing 5x4 concrete box culverts.

The culverts will serve as the storm drain system for the east outfall for the Owassa Road Project. A detour will be set up and drivers will be alerted to the road construction in the area.
