The Slaughter Lane bridge at the MoPac intersection will close to all traffic over the weekend from Aug. 16 at 9 p.m. until Aug. 19 at 5 a.m, according to an Aug. 15 press release from the Texas Department of Transportation. During the closure, TxDOT will update paving and striping as well as add new crosswalks and signage.
Ramps headed both directions at Slaughter Lane will also alternately be closed throughout the weekend.
While TxDOT recommends using alternate routes, detours will be in place, according to the release. Southbound vehicles that normally use Slaughter Lane to head east will continue on MoPac to use the South Bay Lane turnaround, and northbound traffic that normally uses Slaughter Lane to head west will exit onto William Cannon Drive and then head south on MoPac at the William Cannon Drive intersection before re-entering Slaughter Lane.
This work is part of the MoPac Intersections project, which began in 2018 has an expected completion date of July 2021.
