A series of closures are planned for Interstate Highway 45 northbound and southbound as construction at State Highway 242 continues, including a full closure of both northbound and southbound lanes from 9 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday.
The closures are so construction crews can operate a large crane to place steel girders on the SH 242 overpass.
Closures at Woodlands Parkway/Robinson Road will begin Oct. 3 while closures at Shenandoah Park Drive to SH-242 began Oct. 1. Closures at SH-242 to St. Lukes Way will start and continue next week, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.
Northbound commuters are advised to divert onto the frontage road through SH-242 before merging back onto I-45 north. From Shenandoah Park Drive, motorists wanting access to SH-242 will need to U-turn at FM 1488 this weekend.
For closures at SH-242 to St. Lukes Way, motorists will be diverted westbound on SH-242 to St. Lukes Way back onto I-45.
