By  | 

COLLEGE STATION - Beginning Sunday, April 13, 2014, at 3 pm, the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) contractor will close the northbound freeway section of SH 6 south of the Rock Prairie Bridge. All traffic will be diverted to the northbound frontage road via the Rock Prairie exit ramp. Subsequently, the entrance ramp will also be closed due to the freeway closure. This closure is necessary for the contractor to install the concrete beams for the widened section of the Rock Prairie Bridge. The SH 6 freeway will re-open prior to 6am on Monday morning upon completion of the work.

Beginning on Monday evening, April 14, 2014, at 6:30pm, the Texas Department of Transportation’s (TxDOT) contractor will close the southbound freeway section of SH 6 north of the Rock Prairie Bridge. All traffic will be diverted to the southbound frontage road via the Rock Prairie exit ramp. Subsequently, the SH 6 entrance ramp near the Texas Avenue/Deacon intersection will also be closed due to the freeway closure. This closure is necessary for the contractor to install the concrete beams for the widened section of the Rock Prairie Bridge. The SH 6 freeway will re-open prior to 6:30am on Tuesday morning upon completion of the work.

The exit to Rock Prairie Road should be used as an alternate route.

Police officers will be in place for the closure and to control traffic at the frontage road intersections. TxDOT urges motorists who travel this area to watch for workers and construction equipment in the area and to expect some delays.
