Traffic Fun: Forget About the North Loop This Weekend
Tough weekend on the North Loop
If you live around the North Loop, get ready for a weekend of hassles. Major, major roadwork is scheduled, and it likely won't be pretty getting around it.
From I-10 in the west to the Eastex Freeway, entire sides of the Loop will be closed down for long stretches.
For traffic trying to go westbound, the fun begins early tomorrow morning: Fom 5 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday, all the westbound lanes are closed.
All the eastbound lanes get their fun the next day, with the same stretch closed for the same time period.
