The Texas Department of Transportation will be switching I-45 southbound main lanes into the next construction phase this weekend, which could result in delays for motorists.
From FM 1764 to FM 1765, two of three I-45 main lanes will be closed, according to a news release from the city of La Marque. This will involve the closures of exit and entrance ramps beginning at 9 p.m. Jan. 29 and ending 5 a.m. Feb. 1. During the times of the short-term closures, contractors will stop traffic and resume service in short bursts.
During the weekend of Feb. 6, the Holland Road overpass will be removed along I-45 to begin a multiphase construction project. The project involves the Holland intersection being flipped so I-45 passes over Holland, then constructing a new intersection so I-45 passes over Lago Mar Boulevard. The intersections for Holland and Lago Mar will be open to east-west traffic by the end of 2022, per TxDOT documents.
Residents can register for Houston TranStar Road Closure alerts to receive the most up to date and accurate information. All closures are subject to change due to weather, emergency work, or other events.
