DALLAS – It will be necessary to close the US 175 eastbound frontage road from Hatcher Street/Elsie Faye Heggins to Starks Road on March 6 for six weeks as part of the S.M. Wright Phase I project.

The closure is needed to install a water main. Motorists can stay on Hatcher Street/Elsie Faye Heggins and follow detour signs. Message boards have been placed to inform motorists of the closure.

 The S.M. Wright Phase I project includes building direct connection ramps from  C.F. Hawn Freeway (US 175) to I-45 eliminating the curve on US 175 to S.M. Wright Freeway (US 175/SH 310) . The project includes widening I-45, construction of bridges and wireless traffic control devices.

The estimated completion of the project is anticipated in late summer of 2019.
