WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

TxDOT Wichita Falls has issued the following traffic alert:

A Wichita Falls interchange ramp will be closed for 24 hours tomorrow into Thursday. The bridge is located at the I-44/US 287/Spur 325 interchange on the Northside of the city. Specifically, the ramp that takes Northbound I-44 traffic to Westbound US 287 to Vernon will be closed starting at 9am, Wednesday, October 5th.   It will reopen the following day late in the morning.

The closure is needed as crews pour a new slab of concrete on the bridge. The contractor has been repairing the bridge as part of a $1.4 million rehab project. They aren’t finished yet.  There are two more portions to fix.  Those closures will be scheduled for later this fall.

A signed detour will be placed to move traffic around the work. However, local residents are encouraged to avoid the area if possible.
