ADVISORY: Bridge closure in Belton extended

BELTON, Texas - A traffic advisory issued by the City of Belton last Friday has been extended.

The contractor was unable to complete work overnight on the Leon River Bridge on Waco Road, which will lead to the bridge being closed overnight again on Monday night. The closure is scheduled to begin at 8:00 p.m. and end by 7:00 a.m. on Tuesday.

When the bridge reopens, it will be reduced to one lane for the next five months. This will help facilitate the cleaning and painting of the truss structure.

Temporary stoplights will be placed at each end of the bridge to help with orderly traffic flow.
