I-45 Ramp Reversal Project at SH-96 and FM-646
Posted In: Dickinson News | League City News Posted by Pam Moore on 04/19/2014

League City has announced the following road closure/construction by Texas Department of Transportation in a press release:

”The Texas Department of Transportation will close the southbound IH 45 entrance ramp at SH 96/ FM 646 permanently on Monday, April 21 to begin construction of a new exit ramp at the location. Along with the closure of that ramp, crews will also close one inside lane of the IH 45 southbound frontage road for approximately two months.

The work is part of a larger project to reverse the southbound entrance and exits ramps between SH 96 and FM 646. This means the existing on-ramp (closest to SH 96) will become the off ramp for IH 45 and the off ramp will become the on ramp (closer to FM 646).

Initially, work will focus on the building of the new IH 45 southbound exit ramp at FM 646, just south of SH 96. After this work is complete, the IH 45 southbound exit ramp at FM 646 will be closed permanently to make way for a new IH 45 southbound entrance ramp at SH 96. The project should be complete by Fall 2014.

The reversals of the ramps will alleviate congestion, improve access to the abutting properties and enhance safety along the frontage road and at both the SH 96 interchange and the FM 646 interchange. Because of the enhanced access, a secondary benefit is the improved access will make the vacant property in this area more desirable for commercial/retail development. Lastly, with the anticipated completion of Brookport Drive many of the vehicles traveling through the FM 646 interchange will be able to take an alternate route further reducing the congestion in the interchange.

Permanent Closure: IH 45 Southbound entrance ramp between SH 96 and FM 646:
  • Date: Monday April 21, 2014 at 8:00 AM
  • Temporary Closure: One Inside Lane (Entrance Ramp to IH 45) Between SH 96 and FM 646
  • Duration: Approximately Two Months: April 21 - June 21
