Ramp closures in Dallas this weekend
DALLAS – The Texas Department of Transportation routinely conducts bridge inspections on bridge structures every two years to ensure bridges meet established maintenance and safety criteria. Weather permitting, TxDOT bridge crews will close the northbound exit ramp from I-35E to the Dallas North Tollroad Saturday, July 30, 2011, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. On Sunday, July 31, from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. TxDOT bridge crews will close the southbound exit from the Dallas North Tollroad (DNT) to I-35E to conduct these bridge inspection operations. In order to maintain safe inspection operations, there will be various closures for southbound Harry Hines exit from the DNT as it goes under northbound DNT as well as various lanes of I-35E as it goes under the southbound DNT bridge during the inspection operations.
Message boards have been placed to notify motorists of these upcoming closures. Motorists should plan for alternative routes during these inspection operations this weekend.
TxDOT appreciates the patience of area motorists as they conduct these vital inspection operations and encourages drivers to log onto www.txdot.gov for the up-to-date road and traffic conditions.
