On Monday, August 18, the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will close southern Loop 493 at Woodrow Road to traffic to allow contractor Allen Butler to safely rebuild the intersection. Traffic needing to access Loop 493, south of Woodrow Road, should follow southbound US 87 to the Loop 493 intersection. The roadway is expected to re-open to traffic late Monday afternoon.

Then, the following day, Tuesday, August 19, crews will move to north Loop 493 to continue work rebuilding the intersection. Motorists needing to access Loop 493, north of Woodrow Road, should follow US 87 to the north Loop 493 intersection. The road is anticipated to re-open to traffic late Tuesday afternoon.

Crews will place the final road surface at a later date.

Motorists are asked to drive with caution through the work zone for their safety and the safety of the workers. Work is part of a $10.6 million project to rebuild the US 87 interchange at Woodrow Road and will take place weather permitting.
