IH 45 SOUTH TRAFFIC SWITCH AT DIXIE FARM RD.
“Part of IH 45 South Proposition 12 Expansion Project”
Houston – Beginning, Tuesday, July 19, 2011 at 5 a.m. contractors will close the IH 45 South southbound frontage road at Dixie Farm Rd. (FM 1959).This closure will last 6 months. Traffic will detour to the west access roads to the intersection of Dixie Farm Rd. Traffic can either turn left on FM 1959, right onto Dixie Farm Rd. or continue through the intersection back to the IH 45 South southbound frontage road.
This closure is part of a Proposition 12 funded project that will widen IH 45 from six lanes to ten lanes from just south of Beltway 8 to El Dorado Blvd. An additional frontage lane will also be added on each side. The Dixie Farm Rd. Bridge will also be torn down and reconstructed at street level.
This project is scheduled for completion in 2015.
