TxDOT cancels plans for weekend closure on Loop 1604 at I-10 due to rainy weather forecast

Plans to place final beams for a flyover ramp will be rescheduled

SAN ANTONIO – The Texas Department of Transportation’s planned closure this weekend at the interchange of Loop 1604 and Interstate 10 has been postponed due to expected rainy and windy weather conditions.

The interchange was scheduled to be shut down starting Friday night through Monday morning. That closure will be rescheduled at a later date, TxDOT officials said.

Construction crews need to place the final beams for a flyover ramp that will connect Loop 1604 East to I-10 West to Boerne.

Over the past three weekends, the contractor has set 27 of the 30 steel beams needed to support traffic on the new flyover ramp connecting eastbound Loop 1604 to I-10 westbound. The contractor expects to set the remaining three steel beams during the closures this weekend.

TxDOT spokesperson Jennifer Serold said there is only one more set of beams that need to be placed on that particular ramp.
