[ARCHIVED] FM 646 To Open in Next Few Weeks

646 construction area

TxDOT has announced that FM-646 will reopen to east/west traffic in the next two to three weeks, possibly by the beginning of July. The reconstruction of the roadway was supposed to last until September, but thankfully it will be done nearly two months early. 

The FM-646 bridge was demolished in early March in order to reconstruct the road where it intersects the Gulf Freeway. The work is part of a large scale I-45 expansion project designed to improve mobility for motorists while reducing congestion and improving safety along this heavily traveled corridor.  When the work is complete, FM-646 will travel under the Gulf Freeway main lanes. The reconfiguring or FM 646 and I-45 also includes the addition of bi-directional access roads and U-turn lanes which will improve access to surrounding businesses and homes plus reduce traffic congestion.

When FM 646 opens in the next few weeks, there still will be construction work happening along the Gulf Freeway main lanes and in the surrounding areas as construction crews work to widen the stretch of I-45 between FM 518 to FM 517.
