The Texas Department of Transportation will close a ramp connecting Interstate 45 to FM 1764 in Texas City on Friday night and early Saturday morning, the agency said.

The southbound connector ramp to FM 1764 will be closed at 9 p.m. on Friday until 8 a.m. on Saturday, the agency said.

Drivers who want to exit southbound main lanes will be able to use the Holland Road exit ramp or the FM 2004 exit ramp, the agency said.

When did we stop calling it the Emmett Lowry Expressway? I saw the sign tonight and thought they were closing exit 15 by the wording.

TC calls it Emmett Lowry Expressway. State calls it 1764.
