On Tuesday, April 2nd, weather permitting; the Texas Department of Transportation’s contractor will temporarily close the outside main lane of southbound IH 45 between Exit 118 and Exit 116. This will reduce the southbound traffic of IH 45 to one lane. This closure is temporary, and through traffic will be maintained on the inside lane. This closure will allow TxDOT’s contractor to construct a new IH 45 southbound entrance ramp located south of SH 75/FM 1791. The outside main lane of southbound IH 45 will reopen in mid May 2013.
The contractor has opened the newly constructed IH 45 northbound Exit 117 located north of SH 30. This exit ramp provides access to Crosstimbers Drive and Eastham Lane.
