State Highway 6 Reopens To Traffic North Of Cisco

CISCO – The Texas Department of Transportation is pleased to announce the opening of State Highway 6 north of Cisco in Eastland County following a nearly ninemonth closure.

On June 2, 2016, historic rainfall resulted in massive amounts of water overflowing the top of the nearby Lake Cisco dam. The rushing water washed away the earthen embankment carrying the four lane highway, leaving a gap more than 200 feet wide. Residents living north of the washed out area, as well as motorists traveling between Cisco and the Shackelford County towns of Moran and Albany were forced to take lengthy detours.
