Lane Closures Could Slow Northbound I-35 This Weekend

Northbound traffic on Interstate 35 around Ben White could be slow this weekend as the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) closes lanes to allow crews to work on a flyover.

Here's the schedule:

10 pm Friday to 4 am Saturday

  • Northbound I-35 reduced to one lane from Stassney Ln. to Woodward St.
  • Northbound access road reduced to one lane from Stassney Ln. to Woodward St.
  • The northbound entrance ramp from Stassney Ln. will close.

4 am Saturday to 10 pm Sunday

  • Northbound I-35 will be reduced to two lanes from Stassney Ln. to Woodward St.

At an unspecified time "early Sunday morning"

  • Northbound access road will be reduced to one lane for about two hours.
  • North to south u-turn lane at Ben White will close until 5 am Monday.

The $26 million project will complete flyovers linking I-35 with Ben White Blvd/US 290.  It is scheduled to be completed in September. You can read more information about the project on TxDOT's website.
