Freeway bridge closed for construction

Provided by Texas Department of Transportation:

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is scheduled to place bridge beams at the Texas/Buddy Holly overpass on the Marsha Sharp Freeway (US 82) on January 24. The work is expected to take no more than two days to complete and will affect area traffic.

The beam hanging operation will require the closure of both the east- and westbound frontage roads, from I-27 to the Texas/Buddy Holly intersection, to traffic. The Texas/Buddy Holly intersection will also be closed to north- and southbound traffic. Motorists are strongly encouraged to seek an alternate route and avoid the area.

TxDOT also anticipates opening the newly constructed eastbound frontage roads, from Avenue L to McKenzie Park, to traffic on Thursday—which permanently separates east- and westbound frontage road traffic, from the Buddy Holly/Texas intersection east to MLK Boulevard, into their final oneway traffic configuration. Also at this time, the traffic signals at I-27 will be replaced with a temporary all-way (four-way) stop condition at all of the intersections.

The work is part of Phase 4 of the Marsha Sharp Freeway project and will take place weather permitting.
