Gulf Freeway lane closures expected to cause major traffic hassle.
A stretch of the Gulf Freeway southbound will be a traffic pain this weekend as road crews plan to close two lanes of the freeway between NASA Road 1 and FM 518.
TxDOT contractors will alternate between closures of two lanes for the roadway as part of a lane reconfiguration of I-45.
The lane closures are expected to cause a large backup. The feeder road will also likely be backed up.
The lane closures are scheduled from 9 PM Friday (7/22/2022) through 5 AM Monday (7/25/2022).
Best alternate route is to take Bay Area Blvd to state Highway 3 south.
