36-Hour Lane Closure on Bridge

Expect Delays

36-Hour Lane Closure on Bridge

The outside (right) northbound lane on SH146 will be closed on the existing Clear Creek Bridge (Seabrook/Kemah Bridge) for 36 consecutive hours from 12am on August 4th through 12pm August 5th.

  • The first 12 hours of this closure will allow for pouring a large new section of bridge deck for the northbound widening. 
  • The following 24 hours of this closure are to minimize vibrations that could cause cracking in the newly poured deck.
  • The inside (left) lane will remain open so no detour is needed.  Expect delays during the morning rush hour period.

This is an update - original closure date pushed from July 31.  


10th Street in Seabrook Closed

July 30th - July 31st | 9am - 3pm daily

This closure is to create a work zone for a bridge column pour.  Message boards will be placed to assist with directing traffic.

  • Traffic on SH146 SB trying to get to 10th Street / Shipyard Drive on the east side of the bridge will be directed eastbound on Main Street in Seabrook, then right on Todville Road.

10th Street in Seabrook Closed
