Closure to occur on Monday, February 11

WACO — At 7:00 PM on Monday, February 11 (weather permitting), TxDOT will close the northbound lanes of I-35 under the Loop 121 bridge in order to allow crews to pour the deck on the new Loop 121 bridge.  At approximately 9:00 PM, TxDOT will also close the southbound lanes of I-35 as the deck pouring continues to the west half of the bridge.  Northbound drivers will exit at #292 (Loop 121) and reenter the freeway north of Loop 121.  Southbound drivers will exit at #292 (Loop 121) and reenter the freeway south of Loop 121.

The Loop 121 crossing will also be closed beginning at 5:30 PM.  Westbound Loop 121 traffic will be detoured to the northbound frontage road to FM 436 and then back onto the southbound frontage road.  Eastbound traffic on Loop 121 will be detoured to the southbound frontage road to Shanklin Road and then back on the northbound frontage road. TxDOT estimates Loop 121 to be reopened around midnight.


See map for details.


Drivers should also be aware of a southbound freeway closure planned for the same evening at Sun Valley Blvd./FM 2113 near Hewitt, Texas.
