As part of the yearslong project to widen I-45 from six to eight lanes from Houston to Galveston, both connector ramps will be demolished and rebuilt. Work in the area includes excavation for the retaining walls, drainage improvements, embankment building and concrete paving, according to the release.
For the next several months, motorists going from I-45 to FM 1764 or vice versa will have to use detours.
Southbound motorists will exit at Century Boulevard, take a left on Century and turn right onto FM 1764. Those traveling north on FM 1764 will exit onto the frontage road to reach the I-45 main lanes, the release reads.
The four-month project is one of several along I-45 in Galveston County. For more information, visit houstontranstar.org or facebook.com/txdothouston.
