SCURRY COUNTY, Texas -

Farm-to-Market 1269 in Scurry County will remain closed much of Friday, the result of an oversize load being stuck on Fluvanna Hill and blocking both lanes of travel.

As of 111` a.m., a Texas Department of Transportation news release said the road could be closed for another six to eight hours.

Maintenance crews worked to assist the truck up the hill and are working to find a wrecker service to move the truck, the news release said.

Barricades closing the roadway are currently in place. Motorists are asked to avoid this area.
