Those lanes of the Gulf Freeway will be closed between Beltway 8 and NASA Bypass between 9 p.m. Friday and 5 a.m. Monday, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.
During that period, drivers will be routed along the southbound frontage road to the NASA Bypass.
The closure will enable crews to work unimpeded on a project to widen I-45.
