Lane closures on I-35 will be in effect just north of Williams Drive in the overnight hours of July 6-8, weather permitting, as work crews place concrete safety barriers for the Northwest Boulevard bridge project.

According to a news release
, two northbound I-35 main lanes will be closed from 10 p.m. Monday, July 6, through 5 a.m. Tuesday, July 7.

Two southbound I-35 main lanes will be closed from 10 p.m. Tuesday, July 7, through 5 a.m. Wednesday, July 8.

One southbound I-35 frontage road lane will be closed from 10 p.m. Wednesday, July 8, through 5 a.m. Thursday, July 9.

Once the concrete safety barriers are in place, work will begin to drill the piers for the bridge, the release said. Overnight lane closures on I-35 will be needed periodically in the next few months during the construction of the bridge piers and the placement of bridge beams.


The Northwest Boulevard bridge will be a new east-west connection over the interstate and will be an alternative to Williams Drive. The project connects Rivery Boulevard to the west and FM 971 to the east.

The Northwest Boulevard project was approved by Georgetown voters in the 2015 transportation bond election.
