If you go to Monticello from Dallas, do not go the back way the road is closed for some reason about a half mile once you turn onto County Rd 2500.
This back way from I-30 you exit on Frontage Rd (I-30 Exit #156) to County Road 2500 then turn right where it T-intersects with Hwy 127 then you drive over the lake and turn left onto the Titus County park road.
County is having to replace part of the road. The last big rain we had washed it out. A couple of our school bus drivers are having to go another way on they're route as well. Not sure how long it will be closed.
