The Texas Department of Transportation wants to remind you they they had to reschedule sign removal. The sign removal will take place this week to accommodate bridge reconstruction work.  Sign removal is scheduled to happen between Tuesday, January 10 to Tuesday, January 17. The work will take place between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. on I-40, between the interchange and Nelson Street, in both directions. Once construction along that stretch of I-40 is complete, the signs will be properly relocated.  The sign removal will take about 20-30 minutes per sign to remove, which may cause traffic to slow down or come to a complete stop.  Please be aware of the sign removal and if you have to please find an alternate routes on those days.
