Causeway Blvd. Interchange (Phase I)
May 28, 2009
North Causeway Boulevard to I-10 westbound ramp
Crews continue driving piles, constructing concrete footings and columns for the new North Causeway Boulevard to I-10 westbound ramp. Half of all of the piles for this ramp have been installed.
North Causeway Boulevard to I-10 eastbound ramp
We have completed the construction of drainage structures for the new North Causeway Boulevard to I-10 eastbound ramp and continue to remove existing pavement for the old ramp, install embankments and concrete barrier walls. This ramp is currently running ahead of schedule and we hope to have it open by early June.
I-10 West to Veterans ramp
Removal of grass and excavation has begun on the new I-10 West to Veterans ramp.
Additional work involves installing sewer and water pipes along the ground-level portion of North Causeway Boulevard north of I-10 and drainage pipes throughout this section of the project.
CURRENT LANE AND RAMP CLOSURES
The North Causeway Boulevard to I-10 eastbound on-ramp remains closed until early June.
Lane closures on ground-level North Causeway north of Veterans continue daily 6 a.m. – 3 p.m. Left turns from eastbound Veterans onto northbound Causeway are NOT ALLOWED 6 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. There will also be periodic closures of side streets off Causeway for the installation of sewer and water pipes across side streets.
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.
