DALLAS – Weather permitting, it will be necessary to close multiple lanes on I-45 in order to conduct bridge work at the S.M. Wright highway project this week into next week.

  • Wednesday, July 19 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. – Close two inside lanes of northbound I-45 to install shoring towers
  • Thursday, July 20 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. – Close two lanes of northbound and southbound I-45
  • Friday, July 21 from 9 p.m. to 8 a.m. – Close all lanes of northbound I-45
  • Saturday, July 22 from 9 p.m. to 8 a.m. – Close two inside lanes of southbound I-45 and all lanes of northbound I-45
  • Sunday, July 23 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. – Close two inside lanes of southbound I-45 and all lanes of northbound I-45
  • Tuesday, July 25 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. – Close two southbound lanes of I-45
  • Friday, July 28 from 9 p.m. to 8 a.m. – Close all lanes of southbound I-45

  • Sunday, July 30 from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. – Close all lanes of southbound I-45

The detour routes will be as follow:

  • Northbound traffic will exit at Loop 12, and will then go the SH 310, then continue traveling on northbound SH 310 until it ties into US 175 back into I-45.  I have attached a copy of the map at the I-45 and Loop 12 area.  We will have a police officer staged at the Loop 12 and SH 310 intersection to help with traffic control.
  • Southbound traffic will exit US 175 (Martin Luther King) and continue south to merge on SH 310, then continue traveling south on SH 310 to Loop 12 back to IH 45. There will be a police officer staged at Loop 12 and SH 310 to help with traffic control.
