The Texas Department of Transportation plans to close all northbound lanes of Interstate 45 at Rayford/Sawdust Road from 9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 11, to 5 a.m. Monday, Jan. 14, in order to replace the bridge deck at this intersection.
Northbound drivers will be redirected to the service road at the Rayford/Sawdust exit (73) and will re-enter the highway at the entrance ramp roughly 1 mile north of Rayford Road. Law enforcement will be directing traffic at the intersection of the I-45 northbound feeder road and Rayford Road during the closure.
TXDOT is asking drivers to avoid this area if possible during the closure and to continue to be cautious when driving near construction zones.
