LEAGUE CITY, TEXAS – The eastbound lane on FM 518, between Reynolds Street and Texas Avenue, will remain closed until further notice due to a settlement in the lane.
The Texas Department of Transportation verified the formation of a settlement under the roadway after City crews identified it on Jan. 27.
The lane was immediately closed as a precautionary measure while City officials worked, in conjunction with TxDOT, to investigate the cause of the settlement.
“Safety is a primary concern for our residents and all who travel the streets of League City,” said John Baumgartner, Deputy City Manager. “The lane was closed out of caution for motorists and will remain closed until we determine the lane is safe to drive on.”
Officials will begin repairing the roadway once the root cause has been determined.
Motorists are encouraged to use alternate routes as they travel around the City to avoid potential delays.
