It's about a month long closure that affects one inside lane on I-10 West. TxDOT's Deidrea Samuels explains:
"Crews are going to construct a sign column that will display freeway signage, and that's going to close one inside main lane on I-10 westbound, from TC Jester to Washington. They're going to start that tomorrow, Saturday at 6 a.m., and it will be closed until Saturday, December 15."
With one lane closed, Samuels says they don't anticipate a major disruption for motorists during that time:
"TC Jester and Washington, it's just one exit up, so it's literally one street over. We do have a few other closures that are going on in that area. Crews are also going to close two inside main lanes, I-10 eastbound, from 610 West Loop to TC Jester. We're actually going to close TC Jester completely at the intersection of I-10 this weekend as well."
Crews will use that time to do some bridge and pavement repair at that intersection. The I-10 project has been underway for about a year.
