The Texas Department of Transportation will close northbound I-35 mainlanes and Williams Drive to allow for the placement of bridge beams overnight on Thursday as part of the I-35 at Williams Drive project.
On Thursday, July 6 at 9 p.m., the northbound I-35 mainlanes will close to traffic between SH 29 and Northwest Boulevard. Northbound I-35 traffic will detour to the frontage road at the Williams Drive exit (262) and re-enter the mainlanes north of Northwest Boulevard.
The Williams Drive bridge will also be closed during the beam set. 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 before turning left at the signalized intersection at Lakeway Drive to access Williams Drive. (See attached detour map.)
All lanes will reopen to traffic by 5 a.m., weather permitting.
The I-35 at Williams Drive project is expected to be complete by late 2023, weather permitting.
