San Antonio, TX (April 30, 2024) – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has announced a major full weekend closure as part of the ongoing Loop 1604 North Expansion Project. The closure will affect various lanes and ramps at the I-10 interchange, aiming to facilitate bridge construction and bent cap replacement.

Starting at 9 p.m. on Friday, May 3, 2024, and lasting until 5 a.m. on Monday, May 6, 2024, weather permitting, the following closures will be in effect:

– Loop 1604 Westbound (WB) Mainlanes at the I-10 interchange
