I-45, north and southbound at FM 1375 and the FM 1375 overpass in Walker County, will be closed beginning at eight p.m. on Friday, Nov. 15, and end at five a.m. on Monday, Nov. 18, according to TX-Dot officials.
All I-45 traffic must exit using the FM 1374/FM 1375 exit ramps. Traffic will be directed to frontage roads to access I-45 at the entrance ramps.
TX-Dot officials said these closures are necessary to demolish the FM 1375 overpass bridge.
Drivers should expect delays and may want to consider an alternate route. Drivers should exercise caution and be prepared for extended delays during this closure.
TX-Dot officials said the I-45 lane closures are part of the reconstruction of I-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 the 4 1/2 year project, multiple lane shifts and relocation of traffic will take place at various times to accommodate construction activity.
