A Farm-to-Market road has been closed in Crosby County.

Farm-to-Market 651 in northern Crosby County, near the Floyd County line has closed from Farm-to-Market 1958 to Farm-to-Market 193.

“Fractures have developed on the face of a bluff adjacent to northbound FM 651,” said Ted Moore, Lubbock District director of maintenance. “The ‘cracks’ have created the very real potential of the hillside giving way.”

The road has been closed until TxDOT can stabilize the slope.

They anticipate bringing in equipment to remove and reshape the portion of the slope that has become unstable.

Southbound motorists on 651 will be detoured at Farm-to-Market 1958, and northbound traffic will be detoured at Farm-to-Market 193.
