North Causeway Boulevard to I-10 westbound ramp
Crews continue constructing concrete footings and columns for the new North Causeway Boulevard to I-10 westbound ramp.
North Causeway Boulevard to I-10 eastbound ramp
The new North Causeway to I-10 eastbound ramp was opened to traffic on June 6. When the entire project is complete this ramp will serve both I-10 east and west traffic.
Crews will continue working on the concrete barrier, curb, and concrete pavement for the new I-10 westbound ramp. Westbound I-10 traffic will not be affected at this time and will enter I-10 in the traditional manner.
I-10 West to Veterans ramp
The first of three sand layers are installed and construction of the concrete barrier rail is underway.
North Causeway Boulevard
Crews continue to install sewer and water pipes along the ground-level portion of North Causeway Boulevard north of I-10 and drainage pipes throughout the project.
CURRENT LANE AND RAMP CLOSURES
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.
All above mentioned work schedules are subject to change due to adverse weather.
