Construction Detours and Closures

Beltway 8 at Interstate 10 Interchange

Closure of Barker Cypress Frontage Road

Latest I-10 Lane Closures / Construction Updates (Link)

 

Let to contract for $250 million, the intersection of I-10 with BW 8 will be the second most expensive interchange in the Katy Freeway reconstruction program. 

This interchange is one of the most critical urban freeway interchanges in the country and the construction phasing will be critical.  The current direct connects between the two freeways will have to be completely rebuilt.  This necessitates careful scheduling.  TxDOT will augment this contract with a series of incentives and disincentives designed to speed construction.  These are similar to those on existing projects on Loop 610 and other projects on I-10.
