Ongoing freeway construction has prompted the following closures set from 9 p.m. Wednesday Aug. 26 through 5 a.m. Thursday Aug. 27:
· All lanes of eastbound Loop 820 at the I-35W/820 interchange will be closed. Traffic will be redirected along the frontage road to Meacham Boulevard.
· The direct connectors from northbound and southbound I-35W to eastbound Loop 820 will be closed. Traffic will be redirected to Meacham Boulevard.
The construction is part of the $1.4 billion North Tarrant Express 35W project, which includes a section ranked eighth among the state’s most congested roadways. The 35W project includes the reconstruction of main lanes and the addition of TEXpress managed lanes and will be complete in 2018.
