Hwy. 96 closed at I-45 this weekend, March 15-18


Hwy. 96 at I-45 will be closed to eastbound and westbound traffic from 9 p.m. March 15-5 a.m. March 18, according to a League City news release.

Crews will be installing a box culvert for the storm sewer system where Hwy. 96 intersects with the I-45 northbound frontage road, requiring the closure, according to the release.

Eastbound traffic will detour north to Link Road before continuing on Hwy. 96. Westbound traffic will have a much longer detour that will require drivers to head north on the I-45 frontage road, make a U-turn at FM 518 onto the southbound I-45 frontage road and turn right onto Hwy. 96, according to the release.

League City police officers will be on-site to control traffic. Officials expect delays, especially with FM 646 closed and spring break still ongoing, the release reads.

The Texas Department of Transportation will work with the contractor to finish the work and open the roadway as quickly as possible, according to the report.
