Slide Road traffic at Marsha Sharp Freeway to see change this week

Motorists traveling on Slide Road at Marsha Sharp Freeway (US 62/82) will see a change to the traffic configuration this week as the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) shifts Slide Road traffic to allow contractor Granite Construction Company to construct the main segment of the Slide Road intersection.

"Beginning at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, February 25, both north and southbound Slide Road traffic will be shifted onto the intersection's newly constructed u-turns and a temporary detour lane," said Will Barnett, P.E., TxDOT's project engineer.

"Northbound Slide Road traffic will move east and the southbound lanes will be shifted to the west," Barnett said. "Two lanes of traffic will remain open in each direction. The switch will also add traffic signals to the intersection."

Motorists are encouraged to close pay attention to all construction warning signs and be attentive to the changing traffic pattern when driving through the area during the next few  days as the switch takes place, Barnett advised.

The work is part of the $39.5 million Phase 3B of the Marsha Sharp Freeway project. The switch will take place weather permitting.
