The Texas Department of Transportation (TX DOT) is encouraging motorists to be advised of the total closure of IH 10 East Freeway Eastbound this weekend. As motorists are being encouraged to use alternative lanes for road travel, TX DOT wants motorists to know that all eastbound main lanes of IH 10 East Freeway between US 59 Eastex and Gregg Street near downtown Houston will be closed throughout the weekend. The closure is deemed as necessary for crews to repair the Meadow Street Bridge east of downtown Houston.
Drivers can also expect all main lanes of IH 10 East will be closed from US 59 Eastex Freeway to Gregg Street beginning at 9:00 P.M. Friday until Monday, April 2 at 5:00 A.M. Drivers who are traveling eastbound on IH 10 East Freeway will be diverted to the Jensen Street exit to the IH 10 eastbound frontage road. Drivers can reenter the main lanes of IH 10 using the Gregg Street entrance ramp.
