Coryell county roads...temporary storm debris CR194

After riding several of my favorite Coryell CRs today (appx 200 miles!!), I thought a post would be in order....
The storms Friday & Saturday must've dumped a ton o water out of the sky in the Jonesboro area. A few streams of rock & tree debris scattered across the road in the most inopportune places on Coryell CR194 which runs south from Hwy36 near Jonesboro over to the Leon River & Ater near FM2412.
WATCH THE CORNERS & CRESTS FOR DEBRIS HIDDEN UNTIL JUST BEFORE YOU CROSS IT.

I'm guessing there are several other places with the same scenario after those storms......just not over some of our forum members properties!!!
right Tom??

Coryell county roads...temporary road construction Moccasin Bend Rd

Moccasin Bend Road just south of the Leon River Bridge has a section about 1-2 miles which is being repaved. It is down to the gravel base right now & can get sloppy when wet.

Several other Coryell CRs have sections which are being repaved but they are generally just short little gravel bits without much drama for cruisers & sportbikes.

South of Rumley. I can't believe we turned a mile from bumpgate road and headed west as SOG and company were in area also. I thought I saw a smoke signal, ha! We ended up in Walburg after riding south of Lampasas and finding the COOLEST old Fort in Shady Grove/Joppa-Fort (William)Black on CR210A Burnet county. It had an awesome historical marker but didn't have still camera with me. I'll bet you've been there Rod.

Kno the area well.....but I can't say'as I've ever been down 210A. I've stopped at Shady Grove under the trees & at Joppa by the old bridge... "Coffee break"(used) under an old tree by a low water crossing on CR214....Had a big ol bull up on a hill lookin over the rickety old fence at my back....!!! huh...Those roads are some of my favorite short cuts from Florence to Burnet.

TXDoT sure likes replacing bridges around here

Bridge is out HERE on this section of FM 932, just north of Purmela. Dirt alternate to the east ain't bad though. However, I think the only paved alternate is FM 1241 all the way from Hamilton to Purmela.

That's a mighty fine "alternate" to FM932. I actually prefer it myself.

...+ you can use the Ohio Cutoff down across the creek & toward Hwy84 & the cool little paved "goat paths" (as SOG calls em) south of 84 & beyond.....

Yup. Rod, we headed straight to the goat paths. That was the plan.

CORYELL CO - SLATER RD + (Ft Hood) Georgetown Rd closure near Copperas Cove

Slater Rd which runs from the end of FM1783 near King west over to FM1690 at Izoro is a great paved shortcut that we ride a bunch.

This county rd stretch has developed a few patches of gravel (actual county patches) along it's route. They've been there for a while now & I figured the county would've re-topped 'em with tar 'n pea gravel by now. They're not hiding just over any crests or anything so really not too much of a nuisance.....just be aware that they are there.

In other news.....We rode Georgetown Rd from just south of Goatsville down towards Copperas Cove. The intent was a direct paved route to breakfast in the Cove without putting up with FM116 or winding too far out of the way.(Georgetown Rd is like an FM road)

THE GEORGETOWN ROAD CLOSURE WAS JUST NORTH OF THE COVE near Turkey Run Rd. An alternate route is to take Eligah Rd over to FM116 a couple of miles north of the closure. ALL PAVED

& that's the way it is........this is Walter Concrete reporting....

LOMETA ...LAMPASAS CR69 (old numbers)

The county road just east of Lometa off of FM581 which runs east over to CR2200 & beyond to CR39 (old #) has just been topped with fresh marbles(pea gravel) Not all the way to CR2200 but still a pretty good distance for a street bike. CAREFUL RIDING until the gravel is bedded in good.
