Tonight, crews will close the Veterans Memorial Boulevard exit ramp and the right lane of I-10 westbound between Clearview Parkway and Veterans Blvd. from 9:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. so that construction equipment can be moved. The transportation department recommends using Power Boulevard as an alternative route. The on-ramp from Veterans to I-10 eastbound will be closed from 9:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. Wednesday, Thursday and Friday nights. While that ramp is closed, crews will be setting up panels for the construction of sound barriers. The transportation department recommends using the Clearview Parkway on-ramp as an alternative route. All that work is weather dependent and may be rescheduled, according to the department.
