Weather and Construction Directions
The above map is provided to help you access Country Friends (due to the construction and weather) and to address the Exit 79 closure.
Here are some basic directions and options for those unaware of the different I-30 closures due to road construction. Feel free to use your GPS- just take a quick look to see if it is updated with the construction changes.
If you are heading East toward Country Friends (see map):
Exit 79 is now closed. Please take the 77B Exit and either use the frontage road (open, weather permitting) *or* take a right at 35 (35 will maybe add 3-4 minutes to your drive; it’s super easy!) to loop around to Royse City High School on 2642. Once you’ve turned left onto 2642 continue driving to the I-30 frontage road; turn right, and follow the orange barrels right up to our driveway. Both driveways are open; the first driveway is our entrance. To exit please loop around the back of our clinic to access our second driveway; turn right on the I-30 frontage road, heading East.
Returning to Rockwall/Fate/etc., heading West (see map)
Easiest: Turn right heading East on the frontage road (follow the green arrows toward Greenville). Enter I-30, East, in the area of Exit 83/1565 and loop around to enter I-30 Westbound (see map above) back to Rockwall or surrounding areas.
County Road Option, marked with the yellow arrows: Turn right (East) on the frontage road. Just after JD Kennel (between the two billboard signs) there is a small green sign marked CR 2515; turn right on that road (follow yellow arrows). Continue to where it “T’s” into 2642, by the H.S. Turn left (South) onto 2642. As you pass by Royse City H.S. 2642 veers to the right merging into 35. 35 takes you to I-30. Go under the I-30 bridge to enter the highway, heading West (this is the 77B Exit where the Texaco is located; see map). Note: This route looks longer than it is but it only takes 3-4 minutes longer than using I-30.
Coming from Greenville/Caddo Mills/etc., heading West (see map)
1. Exit 77B, loop under the bridge (follow the white arrows) and take the frontage road to Country Friends (if the frontage road is closed due to flooding use the below option). Both driveways are open; the first driveway is our entrance. To exit please loop around the back of our clinic to access our second driveway; turn right on the I-30 frontage road, heading East.
2. Take Exit 77B, loop under the bridge (follow the purple arrows) and take 35 around to 2642 (by Royse City HS). Continue on to the I-30 frontage road, turn right to head East.
Returning to Greenville/Caddo Mills/etc., heading East:
Turn right, heading East, onto the frontage road and enter on I-30 as normal. (Lucky you!)
