Final construction adjustments are scheduled for the entrance and exit ramps for I-35 at Slaughter Lane. On Dec. 15, the Texas Department of Transportation will reduce I-35 main lane traffic to two lanes at Slaughter Lane, according to a Dec. 13 news release from the department.

During the lane reduction—which will remain in effect until no later than 5 a.m. the following day—TxDOT will construct barriers to prevent traffic from accessing the old entrance and exit ramps. Drivers will instead access the new southbound I-35 exit at Slaughter and the entrance ramp “just south of Boggy Creek Drive.”

Also during the closure, TxDOT will complete restriping and new signage installation projects in the area, according to the release.

The new I-35 entrance and exit ramps are an element of TxDOT’s $79 million project focusing on I-35 from Stassney to William Cannon Drive. According to the agency, the new ramps “provide for longer merge distances to improve safety and mobility.”
