Williams Drive bridge and I-35 overnight closures this weekend
Starting Friday, April 21 at 10 p.m., northbound and southbound I-35 frontage roads will close at Williams Drive to switch traffic to the newly constructed portion of the Williams Drive bridge. The original Williams Drive bridge will be closed. The frontage roads will reopen and traffic will move to the new portion of bridge by 9 a.m. on Saturday, weather permitting.
Then, on Saturday, April 22 starting at 10 p.m., crews will demolish and remove the remaining portion of the original Williams Drive bridge. The northbound and southbound I-35 mainlanes will close between Lakeway Drive and SH 29. Northbound I-35 traffic will exit at Williams Drive (exit 262) and re-enter at Northwest Boulevard. Southbound I-35 traffic will exit at Williams Drive (exit 262) and re-enter at SH 29.
The new Williams Drive bridge will also be closed during Saturday night’s demolition. Eastbound traffic will detour to the southbound I-35 frontage road and use the U-turn at SH 29 to access Williams Drive. Westbound traffic will detour to the northbound I-35 frontage road and turn left at Lakeway Drive to access Williams Drive.
All lanes will reopen to traffic by 10 a.m. on Sunday, weather permitting.
