I-35E Northbound Lane Closures at Woodall Rodgers
Nighttime multiple lane closures planned contingent on weather for the placement of concrete decking for a direct connector ramp at the Woodall Rodgers interchange
DALLAS – As construction of the Margaret Hunt Hill/Calatrava Bridge and approaches continues, The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) is allowing the Contractor, J.D. Abrams, to close multiple lanes of northbound I-35E from 11:00 PM on February 16, 2011, to 5 a.m. on February 17, 2011. This is necessary for the contractor to pour the concrete deck for one of the direct connector ramps at the Woodall Rodgers/I-35E interchange.
Lanes will be reduced for Northbound I-35E traffic though a minimum of 2 lanes will remain open. Motorists should expect delays.
Eastbound I-30 traffic will be detoured to US 75 north, then west onto Woodall Rodgers, and back to the north on I-35E. Message boards notifying motorists of the upcoming lane closures have been posted.
TxDOT strives to minimize construction impacts and maximize safety for the traveling public. TxDOT asks motorists to drive carefully through the work zone and appreciates their patience during this unique and exciting project.
TxDOT awarded the $47.5 million contract to J.D. Abrams for the Woodall Rodgers Extension Project, which is being built in conjunction with the $69.7 million Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge over the Trinity River. Both projects are scheduled to be complete by mid-to late 2011.
