Although work continues on I-35 improvements near the new Stassney Lane and William Cannon Drive bridges, the Texas Department of Transportation has pushed back the project’s estimated completion until this winter.

According to an Aug. 8 update by TxDOT, the department in July removed a previous sign over I-35 north of Slaughter Lane and improved sidewalks along I-35 frontage roads, installing a protective guardrail.


This fall, new signage will be installed, and work on driveways and pedestrian accommodations will continue, according to TxDOT.

The construction between Stassney and William Cannon is part of a $78.8 million project that has reconstructed both the William Cannon and Stassney bridges and has improved ramps on and off I-35 over the past four years. The project was initially scheduled to wrap up construction this summer.
