BPUB Announces Expressway Lane Closure

BROWNSVILLE, TX – The Brownsville Public Utilities Board (BPUB) announces temporary lane closures on U.S. Highway 77/83 between Alton Gloor Blvd and Highway 100 from 10:30 p.m. Thursday, June 9 to approximately 4:30 a.m. Friday, June 10, as part of our ongoing effort to repair highway lights.

Traffic will be detoured until work is completed, but no on-ramps or off-ramps are expected to be closed as a result of this work. Times may vary due to the nature of weather and job provisions. This work is part of BPUB’s ongoing efforts to maintain the city’s infrastructure and will improve visibility and safety on the expressway. The work was scheduled for these times to minimize the inconvenience to drivers.

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 this lane closure may cause.
