Viewer Email: US 59@Grand Pkwy

Q:  Hi Jennifer,

I had a question about why txdot is closing one lane going northbound on 59 near the Grand Parkway. I also noticed they were also closing some alternate lanes last night causing some minor backups.


A: They are working to improve freeway drainage. They are installing trench drains to intercept more water than what has been out there. This is to better prevent hydroplaning. The same thing will be done on US 59 NB from Sweetwater to SH 6. I hope this helps!
