Hey Guys,

We have a wedding that we will be attending in Franklin this weekend & will be coming from Temple. Does anyone know if the bridge on 485 is open or is it still under construction? Thanks

485 is closed again. Working on a new bridge.

I actually experienced this today. Wasn't expecting to have to cut over to Cameron. Not a big deal but brings me into Temple a good bit further a way from my house than coming in on 485.

TXDot states the estimated open date for FM 485 is April 30th, 2020. I don't know when this was last updated. I'll be glad when it opens back up!

It is not. You have to detour through Cameron.

Not only is it still not open, but they've torn up even more of FM 485 - in fact, from FM 2269 just out of Marak heading West toward Temple they have actually plowed the road up. I'd suggest that anyone traveling from the Temple area to College Station take Hwy 36/US 190/I-14 through Cameron and then take a left at Hwy 77 and take that North until you get back to FM 485 just North of Cameron. Then you can proceed on to Hearne and hit Hwy 6 South to College Station.

can attest to this. we planned to cut over to Cameron as normal when headed to Houston for Thanksgiving but met a caliche road and a stop sign holding road worker. 10 minutes later a pilot car came back with a single car behind them.

When I saw it was PSC construction on the side of the pilot car, I knew why this road was taking so long.

PSC is the shell company that James construction became when TxDOT fired James from i35 and then they got the new bid under the new name. i don't remember the exact situation, but James burned too many bridges and had to rebrand.
