Womack turnaround to temporarily close
Beginning Saturday morning (August 7), workers will close the u-turn to all traffic as crews remove beams and concrete. The closure will take place from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Eastbound frontage road traffic can use Business US 90 to Womack Road and then continue using the frontage road on the east side of the railroad tracks.
TxDOT coordinated the closure with local businesses on the westbound frontage road to accommodate their shift changes and needs.
The department is reminding motorists to pay careful attention in the work zone and to allow for extra travel time. Interstate 10 traffic should not be affected by the closure.
The work is part of a $36 million effort to rebuild the interstate between SH 62 and Adams Bayou. Williams Brothers Construction Company is the project contractor.
