El Dorado Boulevard Overpass at 1-45 to Close for Reconstruction Until November 2015
HOUSTON – The Texas Department of Transportation will close the El Dorado Boulevard overpass at I-45/Gulf Freeway on July 10 at 9 p.m. until late November 2015 for reconstruction. The existing overpass will be demolished and a new at-grade intersection will be constructed. Once complete, the I-45/Gulf Freeway mainlanes will go over the El Dorado Boulevard intersection replacing the current overpass structure. This will improve mobility and enhance safety for the traveling public. During the reconstruction, motorists traveling east on El Dorado to I-45 will be detoured onto the southbound frontage road to Nasa Road One and u-turn and enter I-45 northbound mainlanes and exit and turn left to access El Dorado. Vehicles traveling west on El Dorado to I-45 will turn right on the I-45 northbound frontage road and u-turn at Dixie Farm/FM 1959 to access I-45 southbound and exit and turn right on El Dorado. The El Dorado overpass reconstruction is part of the $93 million construction project on I-45 from FM 2351 to Medical Center Boulevard. The project will also widen the existing six mainlanes to ten and replace the Bay Area Boulevard overpass. The entire project is scheduled for completion the second quarter of 2017.
