The West Frontage Road will be closed between Park Road (PR) 40 and the Temporary Southbound IH-45 Entrance Ramp south of Augusta Drive from 8:00 p.m. Friday, February 7, until 5:00 a.m. Saturday, February 8.

The West Frontage Road will be closed between Park Road (PR) 40 and the Temporary Southbound IH-45 Entrance Ramp south of Augusta Drive from 8:00 p.m. Friday, February 7, until 5:00 a.m. Saturday, February 8.  

Northbound IH-45 traffic traveling to Veterans Memorial Parkway must take Exit 114 to FM 1374. This closure is necessary to place drainage structures across the West Frontage Road north of PR 40. PR 40 will remain open during the closure of the West Frontage Road. Portable message boards are in place in affected areas and detour signs will direct traffic.

The construction of the 6 miles widening project, Segment 1B of IH-45 from 0.5 miles north of Vick Springs Road to 0.3 miles north of SH 19 is underway. This project will widen IH-45 to six lanes and will replace the State Park Road 40 bridges and southbound SH 19 Flyover. During the 3-year project, multiple lane shifts and relocation of traffic will take place at various times to accommodate construction activity. IH-45, SB SH 19, the SH 19 Turnaround, Southwood Drive, PR 40 and the West Frontage Road will also be closed at various times for the safety of the traveling public and construction workers. Johnson Bros. Corporation, a Southland Company was awarded the construction contract for $116,878,722.89.
