Today, the Texas Department of Transportation’s contractor will open the outside lane and shoulder on IH 45 Southbound in Walker County north of exit 118 at Huntsville.
The work is part of a $10.4 million construction project contracted to Smith and Company out of Conroe. The completed work in this area will include a new, longer southbound exit ramp to replace the short existing exit 118. The ramp is scheduled to be opened Saturday, May 3.
The project has an expected completion date in the spring of 2015.
