Beginning at 8 PM Friday October 18, 2019, and ending at 5 AM Monday, October 21, 2019, IH-45 northbound and southbound lanes will be closed, weather permitting. All IH-45 traffic must exit using FM 1374/ FM 1375 exit ramps. Traffic will be directed to frontage roads to access IH-45 at the next available entrance ramps. This closure is necessary to demolish the FM 1375 overpass bridge. Motorists should expect delays and may want to consider an alternate route. Drivers should exercise caution and be prepared for extended delays during this closure.
The reason for the northbound and southbound IH-45 lane closures is to allow TxDOT to demolish the current overpass bridge at FM 1375, which is part of a larger project to reconstruct seven miles of IH-45 in this area to decrease traffic congestion and travel times, and to increase safety along the route.
