Texas Department of Transportation will be conducting work this weekend on the I-45 overpass at Rayford/Sawdust Road. There will be a total closure of I-45 northbound mainlanes at Rayford/Sawdust Road starting Friday, January 11 at 9 p.m. to Monday, January 14 at 5 a.m.
Drivers can detour the closure by exiting I-45 northbound at the Rayford/Sawdust exit and re-entering the freeway at the next entrance ramp, just north of Rayford/Sawdust Road. There will be police officers at the intersection directing traffic.
TXDOT is asking drivers to avoid this area if possible during this closure and to continue to be cautious when driving near construction zones.
