16th Street closed for the weekend

From staff reports

Citizens will need to find alternate routes this weekend as major traffic detours will make changes to 16th Street and Interstate 10 this weekend.

A major traffic detour scheduled March 31-April 3. All I-10 eastbound traffic will be detoured to the frontage road at the SH 87 exit and re-enter the interstate just past N 8th Street. Westbound I-10 traffic will be down to one lane during this time as well. In addition to the main lane closures, SH 87 at I-10 will be closed during this period. The closure will take place from 7 p.m. March 31 to 7 a.m. April 3. The closure is necessary for the construction of the new SH 87 overpass currently being built as part of the I-10 reconstruction project from Adams Bayou to the Sabine River according to TxDOTs official Facebook page
