Traffic alert for MLK at 183 South

Friday, February 3, 2017 by Nina Hernandez

Construction due to start this week on a new bridge over Highway 183 South will create delays for commuters for the next six months. To complete the bridge work, which is part of the 183 South project, crews will have to take away lanes of FM 969 (MLK Boulevard). According to a press release from the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority, the first stage of the project will require restripping of MLK, which will cause a lane reduction so that “westbound traffic can be moved over to one of the two eastbound lanes.” When part of the work on the bridge itself is completed, “traffic in both directions will be detoured onto the new bridge so demolition of the old bridge can take place, and the remainder of the new bridge can be constructed.” Learn more at the agency’s website.
