IRVING – The southbound Loop 12 exit to eastbound State Highway 114 (John Carpenter Freeway) will be closed from 7 p.m. Friday, July 23, 2010 through noon Saturday, July 24, 2010. This operation is necessary for construction of the new southbound Loop 12 bridge over SH 114. Motorists will be routed to Grauwyler Road, south of SH 183.
The closure above will occur again beginning 6 a.m. Sunday, July 25, 2010 through noon the same day. The exit from eastbound SH 114 to Tom Braniff Drive and northbound Loop 12 will also be closed from 6 a.m. through noon Sunday. The westbound SH 114 frontage road will also be closed on the east side of Loop 12 and traffic will be detoured onto northbound Loop 12. These closures are necessary for the placement of the final concrete beam for the new southbound Loop 12 bridge over SH 114.
On Saturday, July 24, 2010, the exit from eastbound SH 114 to Tom Braniff and the exit to northbound Loop 12 will be closed beginning at 6 a.m. through noon on Monday, July 26, 2010. Motorists will be directed via changeable message signs to use the Cistercian Drive exit.
