SAN ANTONIO – A major closure is scheduled for this weekend at the stretch of I-10 between Northwest SA and Boerne, traffic officials said Thursday.

This area is always extremely busy, but this weekend especially, you’re being asked to avoid the area if possible -- or if you can’t, at least brace yourself for lengthy delays.

“Our contractor will close eastbound main lanes at Boerne Stage Road (plus the intersection) and main lanes in both directions at Ralph Fair Road (plus the intersection) for bridge work,” TxDOT San Antonio posted on Twitter, along with the photo shown above.
