AUSTIN, Texas — More closures have started for the Interstate 35 and US 183 area as TxDOT makes progress on the reconstruction of a new flyover.
Alternating main-lane closures will occur nightly in both directions of the highways for the reconstruction of the northbound I-35 to northbound US 183 flyover. The closures are slated for Sunday through Thursday from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
Traffic will detour to the frontage roads during these closures. All lanes will reopen by 5 a.m. each day.
