Major traffic detour on I-10 this weekend

The Texas Department of Transportation has a major traffic detour scheduled March 31 - April 3, TxDOT spokesperson Sarah Dupre said in a release.

All I-10 eastbound traffic will be detoured to the frontage road at the SH 87 exit and re-enter the interstate just past North 8th Street. Westbound I-10 traffic will be down to one lane during this time as well.

In addition to the main lane closures, SH 87 at I-10 will be closed during this period.

The closure will take place from 7 p.m. March 31 to 7 a.m. April 3. The closure is necessary for the construction of the new SH 87 overpass currently being built as part of the I-10 reconstruction project from Adams Bayou to the Sabine River.
