 Connect10, TxDoT closures, detours for week of Febrary 16

Connect10, TxDoT closures, detours for week of Febrary 16

Here’s a look  project closures for the week ahead, including work scheduled to start Friday night.

Friday night and into next week, Paisano between US-54 and I-110 is closed to traffic overnight, with a marked detour that’s easy to follow. I-10 Connect has been closing on and off ramps intermittently, so look out for those. Both the Copia on ramp (daytime) and the Chelsea off ramp (overnight) are going to have closures.

Next week, every night, I-10 west will be closed from Hawkins to Airway, starting at 9PM.

The weather has caused some rescheduling of closures because we cannot do concrete work with low temps and precipitation. The weather also means crews are out repairing potholes and guardrail, so be aware of those mobile crews.
