TxDOT begins S. Loop bridge construction Wednesday

Wednesday, TxDOT begins work on the southbound Loop 289 bridge.

The construction is part of a $26.9 million project to widen the Loop from Slide to Quaker into a six-lane freeway and improve frontage roads.

They will close north Quaker Avenue/TTU Parkway in both directions at northwest Loop 289. Motorists will not be able to access the Loop 289 intersection.

Drivers will need to use the frontage roads to connect with Slide Road or US 84.
