Beat the Traffic: Metro closes N. Main bridge on Monday
Posted on August 4, 2011 at 9:09 AM
Metro is closing the North Main Street bridge beginning Monday, August 8. Light-rail service will continue and pedestrian access on the UH-Downtown side of the street will remain in place.
The detour route for Northbound traffic on Main is: right on Franklin, left on San Jacinto, right on Rothwell, left on Hardy, right on Lyons, left on Maury, left on Lorraine to Hogan and back to N. Main. The goal is to configure two major bridges for the light-rail expansion on the new North Line.
The detour route for Southbound traffic is: left on Hogan (which becomes Lorraine), right on Maury, right on Lyons, left on McKee, right on Providence, left on North San Jacinto and connect back to Main via Commerce.
If you’re walking in the area, please watch for signage for pedestrian detours.
