Updated from Oct. 9, 2018: Due to the scope of the work and unpredictable winter weather, the County has postponed  bridge repair work on County Road 317 until Spring 2019. A portion of the road (200 feet approaching the bridge from the north) will be rock and will be maintained until repairs are made next spring. Signs will be posted on both ends of the bridge indicating “Rough Road Ahead”. Road repair will continue as soon as the weather permits.

Collin County Public Works crews plan to start bridge repairs on County Road 317 (Orr Road) in the coming weeks to shore up minor damage done from recent flooding on Wilson Creek.

The bridge repair work is due to begin on Oct. 29 and run through Nov. 16, weather permitting. Crews will close both north- and southbound lanes of CR 317.

The bridge spans Wilson Creek, about a half mile north of the intersection Orr and Stacy roads in Fairview.  

The suggested detour route --  heading north from Fairview and Lucas to McKinney -- during the repairs involves using Stacy Road to FM 1378 (Country Club Dr) to State Highway 5 to Industrial Blvd to FM 546 and down to CR 317. Please see the map for the detour route.
