US 281 Phase I Expansion Project: Next Phase Of Evans Road Intersection Reconstruction

The gradual reconstruction of the US 281 & Evans Road intersection (part of the US 281 Phase I Expansion Project which goes from Loop 1604 to just north of Stone Oak Parkway) continues this weekend, prompting the need for temporary closures.

For this work, our contractor will need to reduce the westbound and eastbound lanes of Evans Road (east of US 281) down to one lane in each direction.

Work to construct the north end of Evans Road will take place over this weekend, beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, (September 20) until 5 a.m. Monday (September 23).

Two lanes of eastbound Evans and three lanes of westbound Evans will be restored by Monday morning’s commute. This work will complete the phasing of Evans Road on the east side of the intersection with US 281.

Intersection reconstruction can require multiple changes in traffic configuration to ensure construction can be completed smoothly and, more importantly, safely for drivers and construction workers. Please always remember to move over/slow down when approaching crews -- it's the law.
