State Highway 5 (SH 5) in Fairview between FM 1378 (Country Club Road) and FM 2786 (Stacy Road) has re-opened.

This section of highway under an out-of-service portion of DART railroad has been reconstructed removing the railroad underpass and straightening sharp curves.

The road was closed in May 2013 to expedite construction. The contractor on the project is McMahon Contracting L.P.

Construction is expected to be substantially complete in June.
