UPDATE: The work on Old Bullard at Loop 323 in Tyler was expected to last through Friday, April 15th, well, the work has been extended through next Friday (April 22nd).  You still have to use those alternate routes!

Part of a significant intersection in Tyler is closed today and it will be snarling traffic on the side streets for the next couple of days. Old Bullard Road between Loop 323 and Shelly Drive is closed until at least Friday. The closure is due to the construction of the new shopping center on the northwest side of the intersection. Construction crews closed the road to install water and sewer lines for the center and Towne Oaks retirement community.

Alternate routes are suggested and traffic is being diverted to Shelley Drive.
