The last major phase of the U.S. 290 Program continues as crews work to complete the new SH 6/FM 1960 bridge.

As part of this project, the current SH 6 bridge over Hempstead Road and the railroad tracks will be demolished.

TxDOT anticipates SH 6/FM 1960 bridge construction to be completed in late 2020. The work will be completed in one phase.

Once the new SH 6/FM 1960 bridge is opened, SH 6/FM 1960 through traffic will not have to travel through the signalized intersections at Hempstead, U.S. 290 and Wortham Boulevard. Motorists will continue to have access to businesses along SH 6/FM 1960 via the frontage roads.
