HALLSVILLE — Due to gas line repairs, the south-bound lane of Highway 450 near Galilee Rd is closed.

According to the Hallsville ISD Police Department's Facebook page, flagmen from Center Point Gas are controlling traffic to let north and southbound traffic alternate and get through the area.

Police also want locals to be aware that Galilee Road east of Cyprus has now been marked as a "NO PASSING" zone.

As of Thursday afternoon, it is illegal to pass on the on-coming lane.

Parent-pick up and bus traffic needs to be aware of opportunities to expedite traffic by:

  • Minimizing following distance between cars stopped in line
  • Allowing cross-traffic to turn if your line of traffic is stopped
  • Eliminating distractions in your vehicle (like cell phones) so you are more able to concentrate on safe and courteous driving
