SAN ANTONIO – There will be more closures for drivers to navigate on the Northwest Side over the next few months.

A temporary entrance and exit ramp will be placed in the area. These closures will be in place for drainage work and the construction of a new exit ramp to Babcock Road. Traffic will be directed to utilize detours.

The ramp closures will begin at 9 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 28, and last through this summer, weather permitting. This work is part of the Loop 1604 North Expansion Project. All closures are subject to change and modification as necessary.

Here’s what to know about the detours:

Loop 1604 EB Frontage Road Entrance Ramp

Loop 1604 EB frontage road traffic looking to access the Loop 1604 EB mainlanes after Kyle Seale Parkway will now use a new, temporary entrance ramp just east of the old ramp.

Loop 1604 EB Mainlanes to Babcock Road

Loop 1604 EB mainlane traffic looking to access Babcock Road will use the Chase Hill Boulevard exit ramp. Travelers will then use the EB to WB turnaround at Chase Hill Boulevard to access the Loop 1604 westbound frontage road lanes leading back to Babcock Road.
