The Coleto Creek Bridge on Arnold Road will be closed 8 a.m. Tuesday through March 1 because it is being replaced.
The detour could take Victoria-to-Goliad commuters 10 -15 miles out of their way, according to Victoria County Commissioner Kevin Janak, Precinct 2.
"One thing is for sure, we'll have a nice 28-foot-wide bridge," he said.
Janak said he appreciates people's patience in advance. He gave a rough estimate of 400 daily commuters.
People traveling to Victoria from Goliad will have to take Farm-to-Market Road 236 to Farm-to-Market Road 622. The same rule applies for travelers in the opposite direction.
There will be road closed signs at Farm-to-Market Road 237 and Ohrt, Ohrt and Arnold, Farm-to-Market Road 236 and Arnold.
For more information, please call the Precinct 2 Commissioner Janak at 361-575-4558.
