The southbound and northbound mainlanes of I-69 Southwest Freeway will be closed from Williams Trace to Lakeside Plaza from Friday to Monday morning.

FORT BEND COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- Do you use the I-69 Southwest Freeway in Fort Bend County? Well, we've got a gridlock alert for you, but it should only last through the weekend.

This is all part of ongoing construction on the Oyster Creek Bridge, forcing a closure on all northbound and southbound mainlanes of the Southwest Freeway.

The closure will run from Williams Trace to Lakeside Plaza Drive starting Friday at 9 p.m. until Monday, June 26 at 5 a.m.

Don't fret. We have your alternate routes handy.

If you're going northbound, take the exit at Williams Trace Boulevard and follow the frontage road. Then, re-enter the mainlanes using the next available entrance ramp.

For those going southbound, exit at SH-6 and follow the southbound frontage road and re-enter the southbound mainlanes at the next available entrance.

The $5 million project will replace the existing pan girder bridge with a new slab beam bridge on the freeway over Oyster Creek.
