As you start your week The Texas Department of Transportation wants drivers to expect various lane closures on State Loop (SL) 335 from 81st Avenue to 45th Avenue and on I-40 from Soncy Road to Hope Road for fog seal operations.
Various lanes will be closed throughout the week at the I-40/I-27 downtown interchange for guardrail and patching repairs.
Wednesday, January 22nd the left lane of State Loop (SL) 335 eastbound will be closed from Whitaker Road to State Highway 136 for the installation of chevrons along the curve.
Daily lane closures will continue just east of Vega as the contractor installs pipe for the detour near the I-40 bridge.
As you travel on Thursday, January. 23rd the left lane of Farm to Market 1719 southbound will be closed from State Loop (SL) 335 to Hastings Road for patching repairs.
On I-40 eastbound, the right lane closure from Eastern Street to Lakeside Drive will continue for bridge repairs at Whitaker Road and Lakeside Drive.
Construction of safety improvements is set to begin in approximately two weeks on US 87 from Farm to Market to North East 12th Avenue and I-40, just west of US 87 to the Carson County line.
The public could expect the inside and/or outsides lanes to be closed in both directions as crews remove old, existing metal beam guard fence and cable barriers, and replace it with new material.
This project will involve daily lane closures that will be picked up by the end of the day.
All projects are subject to change due to weather, emergency work, and other unexpected events.
