Just two days before the planned closure and demolition of the Conrads Lane/Kohlenberg Road overpass in New Braunfels, officials announced that the project has been delayed by one week.

The demolition is part of the Texas Department of Transportation’s $80 million expansion of I-35 to add lanes to both the main highway and frontage roads in the region.

Demolition of the overpass will now begin at 8 p.m. on Sept. 22 and is expected to conclude on the morning of Sept. 27.

During the demolition, portions of I-35 between Watson Lane and Conrads Lane will be closed to overnight traffic while the roadways are anticipated to remain open during the day.

The expansion project will elevate I-35 and install a new underpass with a major intersection connecting area roadways, according to TxDOT.
