SMITH COUNTY, Texas - Smith County Road 285, also known as Old Omen Road, is back open to drivers.

Work began in June to replace the old, narrow bridge with a longer, wider concrete bridge.

Smith County Engineer Frank Davis said contractors are still working in the area and may have lane closures, but the barricades have been removed and the bridge has been reopened to thru-traffic this afternoon.

The construction project is part of the Smith County Road and Bridge Bond Program, and Stateline Construction LLC, is the contractor on the project.
