Viewer Email: 45 Gulf at Dixie Farm Rd.

 Q: Jennifer,

I have not heard you mention the I-45 major traffic switch at Dixie Farm Rd. some time in the next couple of days.  The northbound sign says it will start tonight at 9:00 pm but the southbound sign I think says 10/01.

A: Here’s a quote from TxDOT:

Tonight the contractor is removing a large overhead sign structure on the IH 45 north bound main lanes just before the FM 1959/Dixie Farm Rd. exit Thursday night starting at 9:00 PM.  For the contractor to remove the sign structure they will preform a rolling lane closure of the freeway north bound.  This means that the freeway might be stopped for a few minutes while the structure is lifted from it’s foundation and placed in between the main lanes and frontage road.

This weekend the contractor originally scheduled for a traffic switch on the IH 45 north bound main lanes but due to issues with the amount of work they are rescheduling for next weekend starting October 7, 2011 9:00 PM..

They however are still going to switch traffic on IH 45 south bound main lanes starting Saturday 9:00 PM October 1, 2011 until Sunday 8:00 AM October 2, 2011.  The traffic on the south bound main lanes will be detoured onto the temporary south bound main lane detour.

The freeway closure will extend until Monday 5:00 AM October 3, 2011 just in case we run into any issues. – TxDOT
