Part of Interstate 45 will be closed in Galveston County this weekend for construction, the Texas Department of Transportation said Tuesday.

The northbound side of I-45 will be closed from FM 518 to El Dorado Boulevard from 9 p.m Friday to 5 a.m. Monday.

Alternative entrance and exit ramps will be closed on that section of the highway.

Traffic will be diverted onto the northbound frontage road until the main lanes are reopened at El Dorado. — John Wayne Ferguson
