CROSBY This Saturday April 21, according to the construction supervisor of the overpass at FM 2100, through lanes will be narrowed to one lane in each direction.
The upcoming bottleneck is sure to slow traffic as the new roadway for FM 2100 is being built. The website: www.visitcrosby.com promises to keep web saavy commuters up on changes to the surface street conditions.
Two sections are to undergo changes as construction of new roadways begin in earnest to complete the proposed overpass and roadway improvements including softening the curve near the Chevron Station North to South Diamondhead.
A section of South Diamondhead before FM 2100 is to undergo widening. This Saturday it will narrow to one lane as it will receive State construction from the first turn out to FM 2100 and continue as one lane in both directions all the way up onto Edna Road.
This Saturday from the traffic light at Wahl Street all the way to the curve on the other side of the FM 2100 roadway from the beginning of First Street the roadway will narrow to one lane in each direction.
Traffic is expected to remain in this configuration for several months. It is expected to be finished by Summer. At that time a new frontage roadway, currently under construction that is to become ultimately the northbound lanes, is expected to have been completed.
Final completion of the overpass project is expected to be in the Summer of 2013.
