Park Road 40 (PR 40) will be closed between the Interstate 45 (IH-45) ramps each night beginning at 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. Tuesday, May 28, and Thursday, May 30. This closure is necessary to drill shafts for the median portion of the IH-45 bridges over PR 40. Traffic will remain in its present configuration on IH-45 until the new concrete pavement and bridge in the median are completed. The detour routes will be signed. Portable message boards will be placed in affected areas.
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 and southbound SH 19 will also be closed at various times for the safety of the traveling public and construction workers.
The reconstruction of IH-45 will take place in two major phases. Phase 1 is underway and will include the addition of Veteran’s Memorial Bridge, northbound SH 19 Bridge and a new southbound SH 19 flyover. Phase 2, will include replacement of the Park Road 40 bridges. Johnson Bros. Corporation, a Southland Company was awarded the construction contract for the amount of $116,878,722.89.
