Night work will occur at several major intersections from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday nights through Thursday mornings while the work is being done. Affected intersections include East Loop 338, Faudree Road and Coors Road.

Once the intersections are complete, crews will begin work on the main lanes.

Lanes will only be closed when work is being done. The speed limit will be reduced by 10 miles an hour in these zones and a width restriction of 11 feet will be in place.

The project is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2019.
