The Texas Department of Transportation will shift traffic on Texas Avenue between Holleman Drive and FM 2818 on Monday. The shift is expected to start around 7 p.m.
Southbound traffic on Texas Avenue will be shifted onto the newly constructed concrete pavement and left turns for both northbound and southbound traffic will be allowed only at signalized intersections and final median openings.
The traffic switch will allow construction to begin on the remaining middle section of Texas Avenue.
The Texas Department of Transportation is asking drivers to be cautious during the construction.
This traffic switch is part of the $17 million dollar construction project to provide Texas Avenue with six continuous through lanes and a raised median from George Bush Drive to FM 2818.
