Loop 1604 main lane closures scheduled next week (NW San Antonio)

Crews contracted by the Texas Department of Transportation will shut down main lane traffic on Loop 1604 at Vance Jackson on the northwest side of town nightly May 6-10, causing major delays for overnight traffic in the area.

The closures will allow bridge builders with Austin Bridge Company set support beams across the main lanes of Loop 1604 to form a bridge connecting Vance Jackson with The Rim shopping center. The $3.4 million project is the result of collaboration between state and local agencies and is paid for by state Proposition 12 funds.

Monday and Tuesday nights crews will close the west-bound main lanes, pushing traffic onto the frontage road at the Lockhill-Selma Road exit. Traffic will be pinched to a single lane on the frontage road at the construction site, and will re-enter Loop 1604 after crossing Interstate 10.

Monday and Tuesday the west-bound lanes will be closed.

Wednesday and Thursday night the east-bound lanes will close, pushing traffic onto the frontage road at the Frontage Road exit east of I-10. Traffic will re-enter Loop 1604 after passing through I-10 and Lockhill-Selma, with a pinch down to a single lane at the point of construction.

Wednesday and Thursday the east-bound lanes will be closed.

No closures are scheduled Friday night. For each planned closure, which is pending weather or other conditions, crews will begin closing lanes at 9 p.m. with the total closure beginning at 11 p.m. Crews will have the lanes re-opened at 5 a.m. each day.

Police will be on hand to monitor traffic flow at the various intersections traffic will be pushed through to ensure as smooth a flow as possible. Drivers should be aware of an active railroad line that crosses the frontage roads near Tradesman.
