Connect 10, TxDoT project closures, detours for Week of April 5

Here’s a look at project closures for the weekend and the week ahead.  Significant closures are highlighted and complete closure lists via hyperlinks are available below.

As work continues on two new direct connector ramps being built as part of the I-10 Connect project, daytime and nighttime closures are scheduled at two locations next week.

Ramp N, which connects eastbound Loop 375 to northbound US 54, will be closed daily so crews can work on bridge railings and drilled shafts for a new direct connector which will connect traffic from eastbound Loop 375 to eastbound I-10.

Meantime, SH 20 (Alameda Avenue) will be subject to overnight closures next week at US 54 as crews place bridge deck panels for a new direct connector linking US 54 and I-10 to the Bridge of the Americas.
