North side of FM 518 construction will create more lanes for traffic
A closure on the north side of FM 518 between Hobbs Rd./Lafayette Ln. and Wesley St. in League City started Friday (9/16/2022).
During construction, traffic lanes on this section of FM 518 will transition to one lane in each direction, with additional lanes open at the I-45 intersection.
You cannot turn left onto Hobbs Rd. (westbound) or Lafayette Ln. (eastbound) as the light will not be working.
The end goal from this construction is to expand lanes on FM 518.
Improvements being made include:
• Double left and right turn lanes added on east and westbound FM 518 at I-45
• North and southbound frontage roads will increase from 4 to 6 lanes, including double left and right turn lanes, along with dedicated U-turn lanes
• Increase from 7 to 10 total lanes under the I-45 overpass, including 2 dedicated left turn lanes in each direction and 3 through lanes in each direction
This is part of TxDOT’s larger I-45 improvement project and is scheduled to be completed by the end of the year.
During construction there will be an increase in traffic congestion. Plan for extra time and an alternate route during heavy traffic periods.
