A portion of the Marsha Sharp Freeway will close next week.

The freeway will temporarily close from Avenue L to Buddy Holly Avenue beginning Monday, October 10th, to allow crews to build the new eastbound frontage roads under the railroad bridge and make drainage connections.

TxDOT will detour eastbound Freeway traffic south on Avenue L to Broadway, then east to Buddy Holly and north to reconnect with the Freeway. Westbound traffic will be detoured via south Texas Avenue, Broadway, and Avenue Q.

The work is part of Phase 4 of the Marsha Sharp Freeway Project.

The closure will be in place for approximately three weeks.
