I-45 Construction Closure Ahead

Published on September 22, 2017 by Larry Crippen

New Waverly firefighter and paramedic Jimmy Williams advises us that another I-45 construction closure is planned for this weekend.  Northbound traffic will be diverted to share a lane with southbound traffic.  Firefighters have ramped up staffing in preparation for heavy traffic conditions.

Beginning at 8 this evening, the northbound lanes of the freeway will narrow to 1 lane as you approach New Waverly and then all northbound traffic will be diverted over to the southbound side where both northbound and southbound traffic will share the two southbound lanes for approximately 5 miles to a point south of the City of Huntsville. The contractor is planning on placing traffic devices to separate the two lanes of travel in the construction area.

During the first closure this past weekend, a large number of Law Enforcement Officers worked at various locations to keep traffic moving safely. In addition, Firefighters from the New Waverly Fire Department staffed fire stations in New Waverly and their newest fire station on Hwy 75 near FM 2296.
