Parts of FM 170 Reopened to Local Traffic

PRESIDIO COUNTY - Parts of FM 170 has been reopened after flooding closed the roadway for weeks.

Portions of the roadway also known as the "River Road" between Presidio and Lajitas/Big Bend have been re-opened to local traffic.

However, the highway still remains closed to through traffic due to the "spot closure" of an approximately half mile long section of the roadway 45 miles west of Lajitas and 6 miles east of Presidio.

The section of highway is extremely unstable as a result of flood damage. The highway will be reopened when repairs are completed.
