ATHENS, Texas – Repairs to the SH 274 Bridge at Cedar Creek Reservoir Spillway in Henderson County are complete and the contractor is conducting final activities before opening the bridge to traffic later today. The bridge was closed to traffic after an inspection revealed some concrete deterioration underneath the structure. The bridge is located about seven miles north of SH 31 between Trinidad and Tool.

TxDOT appreciates the public’s patience during the three week closure that was implemented on January 30.
