STEPHENVILLE – Work will begin next week to repair and repave Farm to Market Road 8 from Bluebonnet Street to Bates Street, including the intersection with FM 988 (Northwest Loop).

To facilitate this work, various lanes will be closed as needed beginning May 6 through late summer 2020 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., weather permitting.

In 2019, 167 workers and road users were killed in work zones. The leading causes – speeding and driver inattention – are entirely preventable.
