Weather permitting, TxDOT tentatively plans to close Virginia Parkway directly under U.S. 75 from 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8, until 5 a.m. Friday, Oct. 9, to allow work in the area to continue. During the closure, drivers can cross U.S. 75 at White Avenue and Park View Avenue. Delays are anticipated and drivers are encouraged to seek alternate routes.
