Weather permitting, the Texas Department of Transportation will temporarily close the exit ramp from FM 148 to westbound Spur 557 in Terrell at 9 a.m. on April 17 for approximately two months. 

The closure is needed to construct the westbound FM 148 frontage road, according to TxDOT. 

North and southbound FM 148 traffic will be detoured to westbound Apache Trail, which connects to Spur 557 just west of the FM 148/Spur 557 interchange.

The FM 148 project, from south of U.S. 80 to Spur 557, will widen the highway from a two-lane rural to a four-lane divided roadway.
