Construction work is continuing on the western portion of the Marsha Sharp Freeway this week.  Early Wednesday morning, at 3am, TxDOT will close Milwaukee Avenue in both directions at the Marsha Sharp Freeway.

During the closure TxDOT contractors will work on the concrete paving for the intersection.

Northbound traffic will be detoured to Spur 327 and South Loop 289, and southbound traffic will be detoured to Upland Avenue.

A portion of Milwaukee Avenue is expected to reopen late Wednesday afternoon, with delays to continue around the construction zone.
