Construction Alerts

Current

  • Crews are working along the shoulders of MoPac between US 183 and RM 2222 to widen the roadway. This work involves traffic shifts, temporary striping, moving concrete traffic barrier, constructing retaining walls, installing roadway base material and placing asphalt pavement. Lane closures and ramp closures may occur during overnight hours to accommodate this work.

  • Crews are completing construction of a retaining wall and installing roadway base material as they prepare to install the posts and panels for sound wall # 11.
  • Crews are working on the shared use path along the southbound MoPac frontage road between Parmer Lane and Capital of Texas Highway. They are also working on a sidewalk on the northbound frontage road between Duval and Park Bend Drive and on the southbound frontage road south of Capital of Texas Highway.

  • Crews are installing the final layer of friction course asphalt on both the existing lanes of MoPac and the new express lanes. There will be overnight and weekend daytime lane closures to accommodate this work as weather allows.

  • Crews are preparing to shift traffic to the right and onto the new asphalt along northbound MoPac between Enfield Road and Westover Road. Over the next few weeks they will be moving concrete traffic barrier and working to realign the exit and entrance ramps on northbound MoPac at Westover/Northwood Road. This shift is necessary so crews can begin repaving the entire roadway in that area and installing concrete traffic barrier along the median by the railroad tracks where there is currently guard rail.

  • Workers have closed the right hand auxillary lane on northbound MoPac between 35th Street and 45th Street so they can remove old utilities and install a concrete retaining wall, construct sound wall #8 and widen the roadway.
