Question: Why are the freeway lights out on I-45?

Answer: TXDOT has been doing a lot of construction work out there near La Marque close to FM-1765. It’s not ideal to have dark roadways, but this is part of their standard protocol in work zones. When they start a construction project they’ve got to rip out all fiberoptic cables and utility lines.
