Next Weeks TXDOT Closures

Tonight and into next weekPaisano between US-54 and I-110is closed to traffic overnight, but there’s a marked detour that’s easy to follow. I-10 Connect has been closing on and off ramps intermittently, so look out for those. Both the Copia on ramp (daytime) and the Chelsea off ramp (overnight) are going to have closures. Details below. I have taken out all the long-term closures listed we have gotten used to, but they’re posted in the attached release. Next week, every night, I-10 west will be closed from Hawkins to Airway, starting at 9PM. The weather has caused some rescheduling of closures because we cannot do concrete work with low temps and precipitation. It’s a great idea to follow us on twitter @txdotelp because we try to post updates there when closures are going into effect or cancelled. Another great tool for you is our email updates, which you can sign up for at and you can even choose which highways are of interest to you. You may have to check your clutter folder for them. The weather also means we are out repairing potholes and guardrail all over the place, so please watch out for crews. Orange cones, barrels, signs mean You Are In a Construction Zone: Be Careful. The life you save may be your own. Be warn drivers to be careful and drive to conditions.
