BAY AREA BLVD. OVERPASS AT I-45 TO CLOSE FOR RECONSTRUCTION

HOUSTON – The Texas Department of Transportation will begin the demolition and reconstruction of the new at-grade intersection at Bay Area Blvd.  To complete the work, a total closure of the north and southbound mainlanes of I-45/Gulf Freeway at Bay Area Blvd. will take place the weekend of February 26th.

Beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, February 26 through 5 a.m., Monday, February,  the I-45 northbound and southbound mainlanes at Bay Area Blvd. will be closed.

  • Motorists traveling southbound will need to exit the mainlanes at El Dorado and detour to the frontage road through the Bay Area Blvd. intersection and re-enter the mainlanes before the Nasa Pkwy intersection.

  • Motorists traveling northbound will need to exit the mainlanes at Bay Area Blvd. and detour to the frontage road through the Bay Area Blvd. intersection and re-enter the mainlanes after the Bay Area Blvd.  intersection. 

The Bay Area Blvd. overpass will also be closed and re-open June 2016. 

  • Motorists traveling southbound that want to access Bay Area Bvd. west will need to exit Nasa Pkwy and u-turn, stay on the frontage road and turn right onto Bay Area Blvd.

  • Motorists traveling northbound that want to access Bay Area Blvd. east will need to exit El Dorado and turn, stay on the frontage road and turn right to access Bay Area Blvd.

  • Motorists traveling east on Bay Area Blvd  to I-45 will be detoured onto the southbound frontage road to Nasa Pkwy and u-turn stay on the frontage road and turn right  to access Bay Area Blvd.

Once complete, the I-45/Gulf Freeway mainlanes will go over the Bay Area Blvd. intersection replacing the current overpass structure and improve mobility and enhance safety for the traveling public. 

The Bay Area Blvd. overpass reconstruction is part of the $93 million construction project on I-45 from FM 2351 to Medical Center Blvd.  The project will also widen the existing six mainlanes to ten and replace the Bay Area Blvd. overpass.  The entire project is scheduled for completion Fall 2018.
