The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has been building frontage roads on I-20 for the past couple of years. As we get closer to completion in 2023, one of the most disruptive parts of construction are starting.

For bridge and ramp construction, on April 27, Carrier Parkway southbound lanes will be closed from Towne Crossing to I-20, with traffic being rerouted to the northbound lanes, which becomes two-way. Once the work on the west side is completed, the closure and rerouting of traffic flips with northbound lanes being closed and southbound lanes two-way. Duration of the Carrier construction should be complete within 24 months. The contract is performance driven, so the contractor has great incentive to finish as quickly as possible. At this time,

  • Westbound I-20 on-ramp is available.
  • Eastbound I-20 on-ramp remains rerouted to Westchase.
  • Westbound traffic on I-20 can get off at Belt Line or Dechman and get to Carrier.
  • Eastbound traffic on I-20 cannot get off on Carrier, but can exit at Dechman or Belt Line and circle back around to Carrier.
