If you regularly travel 19th street between Memphis and Indiana, your commute will be a bit slower for a couple of weeks.

TxDOT will be closing the two outside lanes on eastbound 19th Street, between Memphis Avenue and Indiana Avenue, starting at 9 a.m. Monday, Aug. 13. This is due to the demolition of parts of Covenant Hospital's main campus.

From TxDOT:

Weather permitting, the lanes will be closed to traffic at 9 a.m. on Monday. While no construction work is planned to take place on the closed lanes, drivers should remain alert when driving through the area. Two lanes of eastbound 19th Street will remain open to traffic and drivers will continue to have access to southbound Indiana Avenue. Westbound 19th Street will not be impacted.

As of now, the closings are scheduled to be over on Thursday, August 23rd.
