Childress Entrance Closed

The Childress Dr. entrance to the Alvin Community College will be closed temporarily and all traffic is being routed through the Nolan Ryan Center parking lot or to Mustang Rd. while construction crews lay new asphalt where Childress Dr and Bypass 35 meet.  Avoid this area until approximately noon by using the Mustang Rd entrance to access the campus.
