REVISED CLOSURE: The Texas Department of Transportation will close the northbound and southbound I-35 mainlanes on Friday and Saturday nights to demolish and remove the existing U-turn bridge at Williams Drive.
On Friday, March 31 and Saturday, April 1, the northbound and southbound I-35 mainlanes will close to traffic between Lakeway Drive and Hwy. 29, at 9 p.m. nightly. Northbound I-35 traffic will detour at the Williams Drive exit (262) and re-enter the mainlanes north of Northwest Boulevard. Southbound I-35 traffic will use the Williams Drive exit (262) and re-enter the mainlanes at the Hwy. 29 entrance ramp. All lanes will reopen to traffic by 10 a.m. each morning, weather permitting.
The Williams Drive bridge will also be closed during the demolition. Eastbound traffic will detour to the southbound I-35 frontage road and use the U-turn at Hwy. 29 to access Williams Drive. Westbound traffic will detour to the northbound I-35 frontage road before turning left at the signalized intersection at Lakeway Drive to access Williams Drive. (See attached detour map.)
Road signs will be placed to alert drivers of the upcoming closures. TxDOT asks the traveling public to be patient and remain aware when traveling through the work zone. To learn more about this project, visit My35Construction.org.
