The TxDOT Bryan district office announces Tuesday at 9 a.m. begins the reconstruction of the FM 2818/Luther Drive intersection east of FM 2818. The intersection will be worked in two phases with one lane, eastbound lane, always being open. The first Phase will reconstruct the north side of Luther while eastbound traffic continues on the south side of the intersections, and Phase 2 will reconstruct the south side while eastbound traffic continues on the north side of the intersection. All westbound traffic will be detoured to alternate routes. Each Phase will have expedited work with the total duration expected to be 24 days with favorable weather. The operation is part of the larger TxDOT FM 2818 project from north of FM 60 (Raymond Stotzer Parkway) to FM 2154 (Wellborn Road),
