Starting at 10 p.m. Oct. 19, one northbound I-35 main lane and the Williams Drive entrance ramp will close to traffic. As beams are being placed, all northbound main lanes will close to traffic for 20-minute intervals. Work is expected to be complete by 5 a.m. All work is weather permitting.
At 10 p.m. on Oct. 20, the southbound I-35 main lanes will close, and all traffic will detour to the southbound I-35 frontage road at the Williams Drive exit. Southbound I-35 will reopen to traffic by 5 a.m.
On the night Oct. 21 between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m., the I-35 southbound frontage road will close intermittently to allow for beam placements.
Road signs have been placed to alert drivers of the closures, the release said. The city is asking drivers to use extra caution when traveling through the area.
The Northwest Boulevard bridge will be a new east-west connection spanning I-35 and an alternative to Williams Drive, the release said. The project connects Rivery Boulevard to the west and FM 971 to the east and is scheduled to be complete in early 2021.
