Total closure of I-45 North lanes over Rayford/Sawdust for weekend of Jan. 11
UPDATE 1/13/19: The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office shared, “Crews have completed their work on the IH 45 northbound mainlanes at Rayford/Sawdust Rd in Montgomery Co. The northbound mainlanes are now OPEN, two southbound mainlanes remain closed. They are doing a little work on southbound mainlanes right now – hence the two lanes closed. TXDOT will have the schedule soon for full southbound bridge replacement in the next few days and keep you updated.”
The Texas Department of Transportation plans to close all northbound lanes of Interstate 45 at Rayford/Sawdust Road from 9 p.m. Friday, Jan. 11, to 5 a.m. Monday, Jan. 14, in order to replace the bridge deck at this intersection.
Northbound drivers will be redirected to the service road at the Rayford/Sawdust exit (73) and will re-enter the highway at the entrance ramp roughly 1 mile north of Rayford Road. Law enforcement will be directing traffic at the intersection of the I-45 northbound feeder road and Rayford Road during the closure.
TXDOT is asking drivers to avoid this area if possible during the closure and to continue to be cautious when driving near construction zones.
