The Leon River bridge over Old Waco Road in Belton was closed Wednesday morning. TxDOT spokesman Ken Roberts said it was due to a TxDOT contractor doing a safety inspection and the road should be flowing as normal by tonight.

After a weekend of erratic traffic signals that backed up cars traveling over Interstate 35, the new lights at intersections have now been fixed, transportation officials said.

Sections of concrete barriers are replaced Saturday on southbound Interstate 35 near Nugent Avenue in Temple.

Eastbound traffic backs up Friday at the intersection of General Bruce Drive and Central Avenue in Temple. Traffic lights at the intersection now flash red after months of inactivity.

Workers on Tuesday resurface the roadway at the intersection of State Highway 95 and Main Street in Little River-Academy.
