Beginning 8 p.m. Friday, March 27, until 5 a.m. Monday, March 30, east frontage road between FM 1374 and FM 1375 will be closed, weather permitting.
The closure is to replace a double box culvert under the existing east frontage road. FM 1374 cross street will remain open during this closure. IH-45 East Frontage Road through traffic must detour to SH 75. Drivers should reduce speed and maintain safe traveling distances between vehicles and be prepared for delays during this closure. Detour signs will be placed along the detour routes to guide traffic through the detour.
The IH-45 lane closures are part of the reconstruction of IH-45 that will involve replacing the existing four-lane divided highway with a six-lane highway with a concreted median barrier in southern Walker County. The project is scheduled to be completed in September 2021.
During this 4.5-year project, multiple lane shifts and relocation of traffic will take place at various times to accommodate construction activity. For more information, contact Bobby.Colwell@txdot.gov or (979) 778-9764.
