The Texas Department of Transportation is making repairs to the retaining wall underneath Interstate 10 at Wade Road. 

The transportation agency said the retaining wall suffered damaged from material behind it, pushing up against the wall, causing some of the material to wash away. 

Repairs are expected to take two to three months. 

“We will demolish a portion of the wall and remove ineffective material,” Deidrea George, TxDOT spokeswoman, said. “We will also make any other assessments once the wall is removed to determine if anything else may need to be done and replace it back with new soil and wall.”  

No major closures are expected, as there will likely be a one-lane closure on Wade Road headed northbound under I-10, which will be utilized for staging equipment and material that will also allow space for worker safety. 

Drivers headed northbound on Wade Road will be directed to take the eastbound frontage road along I-10 and will have to U-turn at John Martin Road. 

There will also be a one-lane closure on the eastbound frontage road for workspace, allowing contractors to work along the wall as well as staging work vehicles.
