Texas Department of Transportation will open Loop 463 frontage roads near Victoria Mall on Wednesday.
The road openings are intended to accommodate construction of a new overpass at Salem Road and Mockingbird Lane, according to a state transportation agency news release.
Contractors plan to move traffic Wednesday on Loop 463 from John Stockbauer Drive to Mockingbird Lane to the newly completed frontage roads.
Once the new frontage roads open, traffic on Salem Road and Mockingbird Lane will stop at the new frontage road intersections. Because of the changes in traffic flow on the Loop, motorists approaching these roads should be cautious, according to the release.
New traffic signals at the Mockingbird intersections and stop signs at new locations at the Salem Road intersection will control traffic. All motorists using these roadways should watch out for new signs, new signals and changes in traffic patterns. Motorists are asked to drive with caution through these areas.
