SAN ANTONIO -- Drivers have come to expect traffic delays surrounding the US 281-Loop 1604 corridor as crews continue to pound away at the seemingly endless project.

This weekend is no exception.

US 281 northbound will be closed both Saturday and Sunday from Donella Drive to Sontera Boulevard between the hours of 4 a.m. to 9 p.m.

Resurfacing work is usually done overnight to minimize the impact on traffic, however, Michelle Martinez of the Alamo Regional Mobility Authority explained that overnight work is not an option this weekend.

Due to temperature requirements, the resurfacing needs to be done during warmer hours, she said. And since our weather is a little cooler now, we're closing the main lanes during the day.

Traffic will be redirected onto the frontage road at the Donella exit ramp.
