HOUSTON -- The Texas Department of Transportation says construction will continue this weekend on I-45 North near downtown.

Crews have planned two total closures of the northbound lanes from  5 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday only, so this will not impact traffic heading to and from Minute Maid for the Astros games Friday and Saturday.

Crews will close I-45 northbound mainlanes between I-10 and Quitman St.  Motorists will need to take I-10 East westbound to I-610 West Loop northbound to I-610 North Loop eastbound and take I-610 North Loop eastbound to access I-45 northbound.

Crews will close I-10 Katy westbound direct connector to I-45 North northbound.  Motorists will need to take I-10 westbound to I-69 northbound to I-610 North Loop westbound to access I-45 northbound.

 Crews will close the I-10 Katy westbound Taylor exit.  Motorists will need to detour to the Heights/Yale exit, turn left on Heights, turn left on to the I-10 Katy eastbound frontage road to Taylor. 

 The Travis St. northbound entrance ramp to I-45 Northbound will also be closed.  Motorists will need to turn left on Commerce, left on Milam and right on Walker to access the I-45 northbound entrance ramp. 

Motorists should expect delays and are strongly encouraged to seek alternate routes. Officers will be onsite to assist with traffic control.
