The Katy Freeway will be shut down for several hours this weekend due to construction work.This Saturday, March 15, 2008 from 4am to 11:30pm, the Texas Department of Transportation's contractor for the reconstruction of I-10/Katy Freeway just east of the West Loop will close I-10/Katy Freeway eastbound from I-610/West Loop to Washington Avenue as well as multiple direct connectors.

The closures are needed to allow the contractor to demolish and remove the temporary railroad bridge over I-10. Due to the concurrently scheduled closures, movement in the vicinity of the I-10/I-610 Interchange will be limited. Motorists are encouraged to avoid the area or seek alternate routes to destinations in proximity to this area.
