Heads up! Lane closures on SH 45SW

Friday, March 29, 2019 by Tai Moses

Road crews are placing the final layer of pavement and striping on the brand-new State Highway 45SW toll road and adjacent roadways. While the work is underway, crews will be closing lanes on Loop 1 (MoPac Expressway)/SH 45 between Escarpment Boulevard and South Bay Lane each weekday (and possibly Saturdays) for approximately the next three weeks, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Drivers should also expect some nighttime lane closures for striping work, which is tentatively scheduled to start Wednesday, April 10, 7 p.m.-7 a.m. Lane closures on FM 1626, between Bliss Spillar Road and Lewis Lane, will take place each weekday tentatively from Thursday, April 18, to Friday, April 26, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. During April, crews will be putting down the final layer of permeable friction course pavement, a special asphalt that reduces pollutants from stormwater runoff, on the new SH 45SW toll road in preparation for its grand opening in May. As always, lane closures are subject to change based on the weather, which is unpredictable.
