The West Frontage Road south of Park Road (PR) 40 will be closed beginning at 8 a.m. Thursday, February 11, from PR 40 to the Interstate (IH) 45 Southbound Temporary Entrance Ramp.
The IH 45 Southbound Temporary Entrance Ramp will remain open. This closure is necessary to reconstruct the West Frontage Road (WFR) immediately south of PR 40. Access to the Huntsville State Park will remain in place via PR 40 and State Highway (SH) 75. Portable message boards advising of the closure are in-place and detour signs delineating new routing will also be in-place.
This closure is in addition to the existing West Frontage Road closure north of PR 40, and the northbound Exit and Entrance Ramps. The goal of this closure is to expedite the work in this area to reach substantial completion of the entire project in March.
The construction of the 6 miles widening project, Segment 1B of IH 45 from 0.5 miles north of Vick Springs Road to 0.3 miles north of SH 19 is underway. Johnson Brothers Corporation, a Southland Company was awarded the construction contract for this project in the amount of $116,878,722.89.
