In an effort to bring the long-delayed toll lane expansion project to a close in the late summer or early fall, the contractor will close all but one southbound lane between RM 2222 and Enfield Road from late Friday evening to early Monday morning.

The closure of two lanes almost certainly will cause huge backups on the road, officials said.

"Drivers are urged to avoid southbound MoPac" during what could be a 55-hour closure, the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority said in a Thursday afternoon news release.

Austin police will be stationed near each of the on-ramps in that three-mile stretch, directing traffic alongside the freeway, the release said.

The closure will allow preparation for paving of the center and left lanes. Only the outside lane will be usable this weekend.

The closure will begin as early as 10 p.m. Friday and last no later than 5 a.m. Monday, the mobility authority says. The agency is developing and will operate an added toll lane on each side of MoPac between West Cesar Chavez Street and Parmer Lane, an 11-mile interval.

Workers will remove existing asphalt in preparation for laying the final layer of new pavement in this three-mile section. That new type of asphalt, called "permeable friction course," emits less noise from tires than normal asphalt and suppresses spray when the road is wet. But it can only be applied when the temperature is 70 degrees or higher, the authority said, lending an urgency to get it done before overnight temperatures begin to fall below that level.

The mobility authority in its release said "a number of weekend closures may be needed."
