Lane closures are planned for the southbound lanes of Central Expressway this week.

Starting Thursday at 10:30 p.m. and lasting until 5 a.m. Friday, the two right lanes will close between Forest Lane and Royal Lane.

The southbound on-ramp at Forest and the off-ramp to Royal will also be closed.

This is part of the ongoing project to extend the Northaven Trail.

TxDOT says drivers should plan ahead for longer travel times and delays through the area.
