I-35 Lane Closures for Bridge Repair

Starting this weekend, you should expect some lane closures on southbound I-35 around Stassney Lane.

Last month, a truck hauling an oversized load ran into the underside of the bridge, damaging it.

Though the Texas Department of Transportation says the crash didn’t make the bridge unsafe, it needs to be repaired – and that’s expected to take more than two weeks.

Starting this Sunday, crews will shut down southbound I-35 lanes around Stassney between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday.

Repairs will cost about $85 thousand.
