Southbound 281 Ramps at Sonterra Boulevard Closed Indefinitely

Stone Oak drivers may have noticed a real headache this morning when they tried to travel southbound on US 281 from Sonterra Boulevard.   According to the Texas Department of Transportation (TDOT), the southbound Sonterra Boulevard entrance ramps closed Monday, Jan. 14, and will remain closed until late spring/early summer of this year.  

Drivers heading to the airport or downtown on 281 from Stone Oak may look for an alternate route.  If you are determined to use Sonterra Boulevard, be aware you will have to wait at the lights on the southbound 281 access road at both the intersections of Loop 1604 and Donella Drive before you can merge onto the highway using the Donella entrance ramp.

TDOT said they plan to study the timing of the signals at the Loop 1604 and Donella intersections to ensure good traffic flow.
 

Today, Wednesday, January 16th the right lane of northbound US 281 from Encino Rio to Marshall Road will be CLOSED from now until 4 p.m.  Off -duty police will assist with traffic control as needed.
