( KTRS ) Drivers will once again be able to use Beaumont-Antire Road to access I-44.
A MODOT official says construction and repairs finished early on the outer roadway, so it should be open Friday. The roadway closed August 15 and was scheduled to remain closed for 45 days. Weather permitting, MODOT will reopen the section of outer road between Bussen and the I-44 ramp.
The department anticipates the roadway will reopen before rush hour traffic starts Friday afternoon.
