Beginning March 29, La Crosse Avenue will be closed between north and southbound MoPac Expressway lanes for the construction of a new bridge above the expressway.
According to a March 28 news release by the Texas Department of Transportation, detours to cross the expressway will be in place until the end of the summer, taking eastbound La Crosse traffic to South Bay Lane and westbound traffic to Slaughter Lane.
The construction at La Crosse is part of the second phase of the MoPac Intersections Project, a $53.5 million effort to create MoPac through lanes at the La Crosse and Slaughter intersections. The new bridge at Slaughter opened to traffic last November.
According to TxDOT, detour signs will be posted, and police will be on-site for at least one week to help direct cars through the new traffic pattern.
