The 215 Beltway between Windmill Lane and Pecos Road will see significant traffic disruptions while the highway is being paved starting Sunday night, and possibly lasting until Aug. 2.
The paving will primarily be done from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday nights through Friday mornings.
The westbound side of the highway will be paved first, with that part of the highway limited to one travel lane during the weeknight, overnight hours, with intermittent closures of the highway on- and off-ramps. Also, the westbound side will be reduced to two travel lanes during the day.
The paving is expected to switch to the eastbound side of the highway in early July, at which time the westbound side will open for four lanes of traffic. The highway is currently three lanes wide on each side, and will be widened to four lanes on each side during this project.
During construction on the eastbound side, it will be reduced to one travel lane during the overnight hours (8 p.m. to 5 a.m. Sunday nights through Friday mornings), with intermittent closures of the highway on- and off-ramps. Also, the eastbound side will be reduced to two travel lanes during the day.
Once the paving is complete, the eastbound side will also have four travel lanes.
