Drivers asked to prepare for busier Christmas traffic due to roadwork

966ee825-f2e6-4cab-af2e-c60c8c43ea85-roadwork.jpg

We won't see snow or icy road conditions this Christmas but drivers will still have to take it slow on some roadways.

There will be plenty of orange cones, "road closed" signs and crews will be on several major roads and highways this week as the Texas Department of Transportation continues work on several major projects throughout the city along with ongoing maintenance and repairs.

Because the holiday falls on a weekend, most school districts have not yet released students for winter break yet which means the regular traffic flow could be affected with more congestion.

Drivers should plan ahead and review the following closures to beat the traffic.
