Construction of a new southbound to northbound U-turn bridge on I-35 at FM 3406 Sunday will cause overnight road closures, TxDOT officials said.
The northbound I-35 mainlanes will be closed and traffic detoured to the frontage roads at exit 254 beginning at 9 p.m., with full mainlane closures from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m., on Sunday night, Aug. 13, weather permitting. In addition, both directions of FM 3406 over I-35 will close beginning at 8 p.m. The I-35 mainlanes and FM 3406 will reopen as work is completed.
The FM 3406 bridge across I-35 will also close while the work is being completed. This work has been rescheduled from Aug. 7, due to weather cancellation.
Drivers wishing to cross I-35 at FM 3406 during the closure will be detoured to RM 1431 or US 79.
Road signs have been placed to alert drivers of the closure. Drivers are encouraged to seek alternate routes, as delays are expected.
TxDOT asks the traveling public to be patient and remain aware when traveling through the work zone.
The I-35 at FM 3406 project aims to improve mobility, safety, and connectivity for all modes of transportation along and across I-35. Work includes replacing and widening the FM 3406 bridge and constructing two new U-turn bridges. Bicycle and pedestrian enhancements will also be made within the project limits. Work on the $12.4 million project is expected to continue through spring 2019, weather permitting. The contractor is Flatiron Constructors Inc.
