MARBLE FALLS, Texas (KXAN) — There’s a hole in U.S. Highway 281 in Marble Falls on Thursday.

Marble Falls police posted an advisory and multiple photos on Facebook about the hole that closed the highway just south of the downtown area near RM 2147. One lane is open in each direction, but MFPD still says to expect “significant delays” in the area.

The closure is causing big backups on the highway that runs straight through Marble Falls and police want everyone to avoid the area while crews repair the road.

Traffic is being detoured to both east and west RM 2147.

Marble Falls Independent School District sent out a tweet saying that some school buses will be delayed due to the road closure.
