Weekend Detours Scheduled at West Loop 289 & Marsha Sharp Freeway

Lane closures are in store for traffic on the West Loop this weekend as contractors pour concrete to form bridge deck on a portion of the main lanes for the Marsha Sharp Freeway.

The Texas Department of Transportation will place about 1,400 cubic yards of concrete on 48,000 square feet of deck in a 48 hour period to finish up the US 62/82 main lanes that span West Loop 289. The weekend work is part of Phase 3 of the Marsha Sharp Freeway project. This portion of the freeway is scheduled for completion later this year.

Contractors will begin work about 6 p.m. on Friday and finish sometime Sunday morning. The southbound frontage road will be reduced to one lane during the day to allow contractors to pour the concrete for the bridge deck of the freeway main lanes.

Loop main lanes will not be impacted through most of the day work, but both south- and northbound loop main lanes will be closed around 10 p.m. each night. At that point, the frontage will be opened, and traffic will be detoured from the main lanes to the frontage roads each evening. Main lanes will reopen around noon on Saturday and Sunday.

The loop main lanes and the frontage roads will not be closed at the same time.
