HOUSTON – Work continues this weekend on the I-69 project in Fort Bend County as crews work to complete a project milestone that includes the demolition of the Williams Way bridge.

To facilitate the work, crews will perform a total closure this weekend between FM 762 and SH 99 Grand Parkway.

  • Beginning at 9 p.m., Friday, June 2, until 5 a.m. on Monday, June 5, crews will completely close I-69 Southwest Freeway between FM 762 and SH 99 Grand Parkway.

Motorists traveling southbound will need to take the Williams Way exit and detour to the I-69 frontage road and re-enter at the next entrance ramp. Motorists traveling northbound will also take the Williams Way exit, detour to the frontage road and re-enter at the next entrance ramp.

  • Crews will also close the Williams Way bridge beginning at 8 p.m. for demolition.

The existing bridge will be removed and reconstructed as an at-grade intersection. It will take approximately three months to complete this work. To access Williams Way, motorists traveling east will take I-69 southbound and take a left at FM 762 to access I-69 northbound and take the Williams Way exit. To access Williams Way traveling west, motorists will need to take I-69 northbound to SH 99, U-turn to I-69 southbound and take the Williams Way exit.

The demolition of the Williams Way bridge is part of the $156 million project which includes widening the existing four mainlanes to eight mainalnes, frontage road work and the construction of two-way HOV lanes.

The project began September 2014 and is scheduled for completion the first quarter of 2019.

Houston TranStar has additional closures related to this project and other roadways. All closures are subject to change due to inclement weather. Follow us on Twitter.
