AUSTIN (KXAN) — Your drive along MoPac is expected to become a bit smoother north of Lady Bird Lake.

However, until the improvements are complete drivers should expect additional closures and delays during the holiday season. After overnight construction, the northbound lanes have reopened at the Enfield Road exit.

Crews are making a major lane change that is supposed to help with traffic flow. The two northbound lanes will no longer curve through the construction barriers. The lanes will straighten over the Express Lane underpass.

Work will also begin on adding a third northbound lane 10 days from now. Drivers are warned to avoid that area starting Friday, Dec. 2. There will be additional road and ramp closures. The exact details have not been released, but it is expected to cause some delays.
