Weekend U.S. 29/ I-10 Ramp Closure
Friday, March 14, 2014 – 3:45pm
The on ramp from southbound U.S. 29 to westbound I-10 in Escambia County will be closed from 10 p.m. Sunday, March 16, to 6 a.m. March 17, as crews continue installing a barrier wall. Motorists will be directed to use the northbound U.S. 29 on ramp during the temporary closure. Drivers are reminded to use extreme caution when traveling through the work zone.
This work is part of the I-10 resurfacing project which extends from U.S. 29 to east of Palafox Street. The project also includes the milling and resurfacing of all ramps and ramp shoulders associated with the U.S. 29/I-10 interchange, shoulder widening, guardrail upgrades, crash cushion replacement, removal of portable traffic monitoring sites (PTMS), installation of new signs, pavement markings and sodding. The entire project is slated for completion summer 2014.
During construction drivers will encounter overnight lane restrictions on both I-10 and the U.S. 29/ I-10 interchange. Lane closures on I-10 and intermittent closures or restrictions on the interchange will be limited to 10 p.m. to 6 a.m.
