HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Repairs on the East Freeway might slow down some drivers on their morning commute starting this weekend.

Interstate 10 eastbound main lanes at Mercury Drive will be closed from Sunday, June 2, at 9 p.m. until Monday, June 3, at 5 a.m. for asphalt repairs.

The Texas Department of Transportation warns drivers that this closure will also affect north and southbound connector ramps from the I-610 East Loop to I-10 eastbound.

Drivers can exit Mercury Drive and detour via the frontage road in both directions as an alternate route.

TxDOT said traffic control and law enforcement will be onsite for the closure.

"TxDOT appreciates your patience and reminds you to please drive with caution through work zones and be on the lookout for work crews and their equipment. Area residents should exercise caution if driving, walking, or biking near any construction activity," the agency said in part of a news release.

Additional closure information can be found at Houston TranStar and Drive Texas.

Closures are subject to change due to adverse weather.
