HOUSTON – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will continue replacing the bridge deck on I-45 this weekend in Montgomery County. Closures will be similar to last weekend’s closures but on the southbound side of I-45. There will be a total closure of I-45 southbound mainlanes at Rayford/Sawdust Road starting Friday, January 18 at 9 p.m. to Monday, January 21 at 5 a.m.

Drivers will detour the closure by exiting I-45 southbound at the Rayford/Sawdust exit and re-entering the freeway at the next entrance ramp, just south of Rayford/Sawdust Road. There will be police officers at the intersection directing traffic.

The U-turns at the Rayford/Sawdust Road intersection will also be closed from Friday, January 18 at 9 p.m. to Monday, January 21 at 5 a.m., but drivers will be able to drive under the freeway on Rayford/Sawdust Road.

TXDOT is asking drivers to avoid this area if possible during this closure and to continue to be cautious when driving near construction zones. All closures are subject to change due to inclement weather.

Road closure information will be posted at For more information, contact Emily Black at (713) 802-5022. Follow us on Twitter @TxDOTHouston.
