Ongoing freeway construction has prompted the following closures:
Monday Jan. 11 through Wednesday Jan. 13, 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.:
· All lanes of northbound Interstate 35W at the I-35W/Loop 820 interchange. Due to the location of the closure, the direct connector from northbound I-35W to westbound Loop 820 also will be closed. The direct connector from northbound I-35W to eastbound Loop 820 will remain open during the operation. Traffic will be redirected to State Highway 377.
Monday Jan. 11 through Friday Jan. 15, 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.:
· All lanes of eastbound and westbound Northside Drive/Yucca Avenue at I-35W. Eastbound traffic will be redirected to Pharr Street and westbound traffic will be redirected to Northeast 28th Street.
The work is part of the $1.4 billion North Tarrant Express 35W project. Included is a section ranked sixth on the state’s most congested roadway list along 6.5 miles of I-35W from north of I-30 to north of I-820 including the I-35W/I-820 interchange in Fort Worth. The project includes the reconstruction of main lanes and the addition of TEXpress managed lanes.
