McALLEN, Texas – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT), in conjunction with Hidalgo County Precinct 4, and the City of McAllen, plans to widen FM 676 (Mile 5 Road) to 5 lanes in northwest McAllen, between FM 2220 (Ware Road) and Taylor Road. Construction is expected to begin this June.

Area residents and commuters are advised that once construction begins, a segment of the existing roadway betweenFM 2220 (Ware Road) and Bentsen Road will close to through traffic, for approximately 5 months. The closure is necessary to remove and replace an existing bridge located at the Edinburg Main Canal, approximately 1500 feet west of the FM 676 (Mile 5) and FM 2220 (Ware Road) intersection.

Local property owners will still have access within the closure. The FM 676 (Mile 5) traffic will be detoured along FM 2220 (Ware Road), FM 1924 (Buddy Owens), and FM 494 (Shary Road).

Once the bridge work is completed, the detour will be removed and FM 676 (Mile 5) will be open for traffic.

Overall completion of the FM 676 (Mile 5 Road) widening between FM 2220 (Ware Road) and Taylor Road is expected in the Spring of 2025. Project amenities include 4 travel lanes (two eastbound and two westbound), a dedicated center turn lane, and shoulders.
