SAN ANTONIO (KTSA News) — Drivers in the Boerne area can expect some delays on I-10 this weekend.
TxDOT says they are going to close both directions of the highway from SH 46 to US 87.
Crews will be removing the existing SH 46 bridge.
TxDOT says the project is going to take about 56 hours as long as the weather cooperates.
The Eastbound and Westbound lanes will be closed from 8 P.M. Friday, February 11 until 5 A.M. Monday, February 14.
If you must travel through the area, the following detours will be set up:
Westbound traffic. The westbound mainlanes will be reduced to one-lane and then directed to use exit 540 (SH 46/Bandera Rd.) Westbound frontage road traffic will continue through the SH 46 intersection and enter mainlanes at the next available entrance ramp located near Frederick’s Creek.
