HOUSTON – The Texas Department of Transportation will begin major work on the I-69 Eastex Freeway southbound bridge over Little York this weekend. Crews will demolish and reconstruct the bridge deck.

The project begins September 6 and is anticipated to take a month and half to complete.

Starting Sep. 6 at 9 p.m. through Sep. 9 at 5 a.m., crews will close all mainlanes of I-69 Eastex southbound at Little York to prepare the roadway for the reconfigured lanes. Traffic will be detoured to the I-69 Eastex southbound exit to Hopper, continue on the frontage road through the signalized intersections to reenter the I-69 Eastex southbound mainlanes.

There will also be additional closures during construction:

  • I-69 Eastex southbound from Mount Houston to Little York, two alternating mainlanes will be closed starting on Sep. 9 at 5am until Oct. 16 at 5 a.m.
  • I-69 Eastex southbound entrance ramp from Mount Houston will be closed starting Sep. 5 at 8 p.m. until Oct. 16 at 5 a.m.
  • I-69 Eastex southbound exit ramps to Jensen, Saunders and Parker will be closed Sep. 23 at 5 a.m. until Oct. 16 at 5 a.m. Traffic will be detoured to the Tidwell exit ramp and U-turn onto the I-69 Eastex northbound frontage road to reach Jensen, Saunders and Parker.
