A Wichita Falls interchange ramp will be closed Tuesday, January 10th and will remain closed for at least 24 hours.

A signed detour will be place to move traffic around the work. Law enforcement will be on the scene to help move traffic through the Loop 11 intersection more efficiently. Local residents are asked to avoid the area if possible.
