Beginning Monday, Dec, 21, through Wednesday, Jan. 6, crews will close the eastbound lanes of Dean Keeton Street between Guadalupe Street and Whitis Avenue. Construction work will close the westbound lanes of Dean Keeton between Whitis and Guadalupe from Thursday, Jan. 7, through Friday, Jan. 15.

The lane closures will allow for the crews to install the main steel structure of an overhead pedestrian bridge linking the Moody College of Communication buildings on the north and south sides of the 300 block of Dean Keeton Street.

The bridge is scheduled for completion at the end of February. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
