Causeway Blvd. Interchange (Phase I)
April 27, 2009
Work began on this project April 6. Crews have begun driving concrete piles and constructing concrete footings and columns for the new North Causeway Boulevard to I-10 westbound ramp. Also, we have begun removing existing pavement, fencing, concrete, signs, light poles, etc. for construction of new North Causeway Boulevard to I-10 eastbound ramp.
Additional work involves installing drainage pipes, sewer pipes, drains and manholes along the ground-level portion of North Causeway Boulevard north of I-10.
CURRENT LANE AND RAMP CLOSURES
The old North Causeway Boulevard to I-10 eastbound on-ramp is closed for approximately two months.
Lane closures on ground-level North Causeway north of Veterans to begin next week.
Motorists should expect delays, and we ask that you proceed through the project with caution. Be on the lookout for flaggers and construction traffic entering and exiting the highway, side streets and driveways.
Traffic entering and exiting some streets, driveways, businesses and subdivisions will be temporarily inconvenienced while construction continues. If your business or residence has two entrances/exits, one entrance/exit will be closed temporarily during construction operations, but the other entrance will remain open allowing access to your business or residence. If your business has one entrance/exit, we will maintain traffic in and out of the business or residence while crews work across the driveway.
All above mentioned work schedules are subject to change due to adverse weather. Please see public notices for exact times, dates and cancellations.
