WACO – The Texas Department of Transportation — Waco District and its contractor will perform various lane closures as work continues within the project corridor. Starting next Monday, May 16, crews will fully close Exchange Parkway at the eastbound SH 6 frontage road for drainage work. Access will be closed to and from Exchange Parkway, while the frontage road will remain open — traffic can utilize Bagby Avenue and Texas Central Parkway to access Exchange Parkway. This closure is expected to reopen early June, weather permitting.


Additionally, crews will begin the Bagby Avenue U-turn bridge deck pours tonight. This activity will require nightly closures to ensure the safety of crews and the traveling public. Closures include:


  • Westbound closures: SH 6 westbound mainlanes from the N Old Robinson Road intersection to the westbound on-ramp to SH 6 just before the Beverly Drive railroad. Westbound on-ramp to SH 6 just before I-35 and the westbound on-ramp to SH 6 before Bagby Avenue. The westbound frontage road from right after the on-ramp to SH 6 before the Beverly Drive railroad. The northbound direct connector from I-35 to SH 6 westbound.


  • Eastbound closures: SH 6 eastbound mainlanes from the off-ramp to Exchange Parkway to the off-ramp to Legend Lake Parkway. Also, the eastbound on-ramp to SH 6 to Bagby Avenue. 


  • Both westbound and eastbound closures are scheduled to be active nightly from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. through the beginning of June.
