IH 10 EASTBOUND AT STUDEMONT EXIT RAMP TO RE-OPEN THIS WEEKEND

“Motorists will now be able to access the newly constructed eastbound frontage road from Studemont to Taylor St.”

The IH 10 Eastbound Studemont exit ramp will re-open to traffic this weekend ahead of the projected construction schedule.  With the opening of the Studemont exit, motorists will now be able to access the newly constructed eastbound frontage road to Taylor St. Construction crews anticipate completing the final preparations to re-open the ramp by 10 p.m. Saturday, March 26, 2011.

Balfour Beatty Infrastructure earned the maximum incentive of $300,000 for completing the contract milestone and opening the ramp more than 30 days ahead of schedule.

Motorists should be advised that the next phase of work requires the closure of the IH 10 eastbound entrance ramp from Heights Blvd. which will be closed continuously from 7:00 a.m., Saturday, March 26 to 5:00 p.m., Sunday, July 31. Detour to the Taylor entrance.

  • SH 35 from Clear Creek to FM 518 is still on going and progressing.  We are working on finishing the last bit of storm sewer construction between Orange Street south to FM 518.  We are starting paving work on the north end.  We are also working on bridge work at Town ditch and Hickory Slough also.
  • As for Cullen, we are very close to completely finishing the project.  The traffic is now in final configuration and we still have sidewalk, driveway and landscape to complete.
  • At Dixie Farm road from Clear Creek to SH 35, we are also very close to finishing the project.  Need to finish sidewalk and driveways and landscape,e tc.
  • Down south in Lake Jackson, we just switched traffic onto the newly built frontage road and start the milestone construction of the mainlanes and bridges. We will also be switching traffic on FM 2004 from BS 288 to This Way street.  After that we will have 3 more month’s work in storm sewer and asphalt overlay to complete the project.
