Drivers beware: Interstate 45 to be closed this weekend

posted by Houston Chronicle's Jay R. Jordan - 

Drivers heading north on Interstate 45 this weekend from Montgomery County should prepare for a headache.

Both I-45 northbound and southbound will be closed near New Waverly as part of an ongoing construction project to reroute FM 1374 in Walker County underneath I-45. Currently, FM 1374 runs over the highway, but plans to widen I-45 to six lanes dictate that the farm-to-market road should run at surface level with the highway bridging over the road.

For this weekend, I-45 will be closed from 8 p.m. Friday until 4 a.m. Monday at the latest as crews work around the clock to demolish the existing bridge.
