TxDOT has put out a list of lane closures in the area for this week. You definitely want to take this into consideration as you are heading to and from work this week.


Business Loop 40, expect continued lane closures in both directions starting Tuesday from US 60 to the Carson County line for fog sealing.

I-40, expect lane closures eastbound from Pullman Road to the US 287 split for crack sealing.

I-27 frontage roads, expect continued lane closures in both directions at various locations for tree trimming.

Western Street at Loop 335 (Hollywood), the roadways is closed on the south side of the intersection for the next several weeks as part of the freeway reconstruction project.  Traffic from Loop 335 wishing to go south on Western Street will need to use Bell Street south to Sundown Lane.  Traffic on Western Street heading north toward Loop 335 will still be able to access all points south of the closure.

Traffic control will be placed on the Eastbound I-40 to Southbound I-27 direct-connect project at the downtown interchange.

Southbound I-27 traffic will reduced to one lane at the center of interchange. The Westbound I-40 to SB I-27 direct connect will come into its own lane as before except it will be over 1 lane.  From this point there will be 2 lanes through the construction until past the 26th Ave bridge.   The Southbound 26th exit will remain open, but will close in approximately 2-3 weeks for as long as 6 weeks.

Traffic using the existing EB I-40 to NB/Downtown or SB/Canyon connectors must be in the assigned lane when they exit I-40. There will only be one lane for the downtown traffic until the new SB/Canyon direct connect is open.

The Texas Department of Transportation reminds you to slow down in work zones.
