The Brownsville Public Utilities Board (BPUB) announces a temporary closure of two northbound lanes on Interstate Highway 77/83 (US77/83) on Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018, from midnight to approximately 6 a.m. BPUB crews will temporarily close the two left northbound lanes of the expressway from Stillman Road to Merryman Road as BPUB personnel repair expressway lighting.
This closure, which will only impact northbound traffic, is part of an ongoing effort by BPUB to improve the city’s safety and infrastructure. The expressway lighting repairs will improve visibility and safety for drivers. This work was originally scheduled to take place Jan. 25 but had to be postponed because of weather conditions.
During construction, traffic will be reduced to one lane until work is completed. All construction dates and times are approximate, and the end date and time may vary due to the nature of weather, soil conditions and job provisions.
BPUB, Texas Department of Transportation and City of Brownsville departments have coordinated on this effort to make it a safe and efficient operation. BPUB apologizes for any inconveniences the closure may cause.
