TxDOT Makes repairs to I-45 service road from Harborside to 59th Street


(GALVESTON, TX) June 13, 2018– TxDOT will be making needed repairs to the northbound and southbound frontage road from Harborside to 59th St in Galveston beginning Thursday, June 14th through Saturday, June 30th. During this time, one alternate lane will be closed daily from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm, excluding weekends.

Drivers should use alternate routes when possible. Delays are anticipated in the area.

Suggested alternate route:

  • Drivers can utilize 51st Street to Broadway to access Harborside and bypass the repairs.
  • Drivers looking for easy access to the Seawall can use the recently improved 45th Street and 53rd Street corridors.

Significant Impacts:

  • On Thursday, June 14th through Friday, June 15th, the work will focus on the northbound service road at I-45 and Harborside Drive. While they do not anticipate closing the intersection entirely, due to the amount of traffic that passes through this intersection we are strongly suggesting that drivers utilize 51st Street to Broadway to access I-45 North.
