FM 1488 Construction

This is a two phase process which will begin with the shutdown of the Spur 149 at FM 1488. This work is scheduled to begin on Friday, February 10 and completed by Tuesday, February 14 at 5 a.m. Spur 149 will not be accessible from FM 1488.

Once the work is completed at the Spur 149 intersection, the traffic configuration to access the high school will change. The new traffic pattern will have all the vehicles driving on the new section of FM 1488. This new traffic pattern changes the access point to the high school, natatorium and the athletic fields.

The new access point to Magnolia High School will be at the new light on FM 1488, just west of the Spur 149 intersection. This will be the ONLY access point to the service road in front of the high school. When exiting the school, all the traffic will be forced to exit to the east.

The traffic pattern in the afternoon will be as follows:
  • All the students exiting the student parking lot will go east (left).
  • Parents picking up their child will enter through the main drive of the high school and turn right at the circle. The new pick up/loading zone will be along the sidewalk in front of the parking lot. Parents will then continue forward and exit onto the service road by the natatorium.
  • Magnolia ISD will have constables managing the lights at FM 1488 (new access point) and at Spur 149.
You can expect the new traffic pattern to be in effect for 6 – 8 months. Students, parents, and staff who travel this route should allow extra time for travel to and from school.
