Repairs to the 59 southbound bridge at the San Jacinto river will be completed sooner than anticipated, and lanes will be reopened very soon.

The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is close to completing the I-69 (Highway 59) Eastex southbound mainlanes bridge over the San Jacinto River. To facilitate the opening of the new bridge to traffic, crews will need to close the following to return the roadway to its original configuration:
 
• I-69 Eastex southbound mainlanes between FM 1314 to FM 1960, multiple mainlanes closed continuously beginning Friday, June 22 at 9 p.m. through Monday, June 25 at 5 a.m. At least one lane will remain open.
 
• I-69 Eastex southbound exit ramp to Sorters McClellan Rd./ Townsen total closure continuously beginning Friday, June 22 at 9 p.m. through Saturday, June 23 at 6 p.m. Detour southbound on the mainlanes to the exit ramp to Will Clayton, continue on the southbound frontage road, U-turn at FM 1960 to the northbound frontage road, continue on the northbound frontage road to reach Townsen or Sorters McClellan.
 
• I-69 Eastex southbound entrance ramp from Sorters McClellan Rd. total closure continuously beginning Friday, June 22 at 9 p.m. through Saturday, June 23 at 6 p.m. Detour southbound on the frontage road to the entrance ramp from Townsen to reach the mainlanes of I-69 southbound.

During Hurricane Harvey, the main channel of the San Jacinto River shifted, impacting the I-69 southbound mainlanes bridge over the river. As a result, the depth and alignment of the river changed affecting the foundation of the bridge. The bridge was reconstructed to overcome future shifts and to restore the load carrying capacity on the bridge.
 
The project was expected to take six months to complete but the contractor, Webber, LLC Construction, worked feverishly to get it done sooner.

Drove through there yesterday and was totally amazed at how much was accomplished in the last two weeks. The new deck was complete and it looked like a guard wall and cleanup was all that was remaining. Hats off to Tx DoT for getting it done. I bet the contractor earned a bunch in incentives for coming in ahead of schedule.

ABC 13 just reported the south bound lanes will open next Then the week after that the north bound will be back to normal. Does anybody know if they are going to fix the U Turn on the south side of the bridge?

Hope they aren't sacrificing quality to get it done faster in return for bonus money....I've seen it happen in other fields....
