“TxDOT will be doing roadway maintenance over the weekend”
Houston – The Texas Department of Transportation will close multiple mainlanes of IH 45 North Freeway northbound and southbound from Tidwell to IH 610 North Loop beginning Friday, October 7 at 10 p.m. until Monday, October 10 at 5 a.m.
· Crews will first close down the southbound lanes of IH 45 North from Tidwell to IH 610 as well as the Airline and Tidwell entrance ramps and Airline and Crosstimbers exit ramps. Motorists can detour to the next available entrance or exit ramp to access the mainlanes or frontage road.
· Once complete, crews will reopen the southbound mainlanes and ramps, and close the northbound lanes of IH 45 North from IH 610 to Tidwell as well as the Crosstimbers entrance ramp and Crosstimbers and Airline exit ramps. Motorists can detour to the next available entrance or exit ramp to access the mainlanes or frontage road.
· In addition, crews will close one eastbound lane on the IH 610 North Loop connector to IH 45 North on Sunday, October 9 at 5 a.m. until Monday, October 10 at 5 a.m. Also, the Crosstimbers, Airline and Tidwell intersections at IH 45 North will also be closed. Motorists traveling these roads will have to turn right onto the frontage road and u-turn at the next open intersection.
The closures will alternate between the mainlanes and at least one mainlane will be open at all times. Police officers will be posted at the intersections to assist with traffic flow.
Crews will mill the existing asphalt pavement and replace it with new asphalt and striping. The work is intended to improve conditions on the heavily-traveled stretch of roadway.
