I-35 Map Graphic

The image shows the construction of the I-35 expansion’s first phase from 1.4 miles south of Spring Creek Road to one-fifth of a mile south of U.S. 82. The first phase will widen that portion of the highway to a six-lane interstate.

Nightly road closures continue for phase one of the Texas Department of Transportation’s $210 million expansion project.

A news release from TxDOT spokeswoman Adele Lewis indicated the following closures:

Nightly closures on Interstate 35 Frontage Road for barrier and detour work from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Dates that span more than one night are recurring nightly.

July 19-20: The right lane on northbound I-35 at Spring Creek and the exit ramp.

July 19-22: Southbound Frontage Road (northbound direction) down to one lane with flagging operation, U-turn at Elm Fork and southbound I-35 exit ramp (Exit 495).

July 22– 23: Southbound I-35 exit ramp to Farm-to-Market Road 1306.

July 26-27: Northbound I-35 exit ramp to Farm-to-Market Road 1306 and northbound Frontage Road (southbound direction) down to one lane with flagging operation between FM 1306 and Spring Creek.

July 27 –28: Southbound I-35 entrance ramp from Farm-to-Market Road 1306.

Northbound I-35 Frontage Road will be down to one lane from Farm-to-Market Road 51 to the new temporary exit ramp to U.S. 82 until phase three of the project.

The I-35 expansion project includes the widening of I-35 from Farm-to-Market Road 3002 in Cooke County to Mile Marker 3 in Love County, Oklahoma, updating the roadway to current design standards and providing congestion relief for expected future traffic increases. TxDOT’s ultimate goal is to construct an eight-lane interstate.

Phase one of the project consists of expanding I-35 to six lanes from 1.4 miles south of Spring Creek Road to one-fifth of a mile south of U.S. 82. Lewis previously told the Register that Irving-based Austin Bridge & Road was awarded a $210 million contract in February for the first phase. Grand Prairie-based Zachry Construction Corp was also awarded the contract as part of a joint venture, she said.

Construction for the first phase will be over the next three and a half years.

All lane and road closures are subject to change due to weather or construction processes. Check out www.DriveTexas.Org for full closure details and maps, TxDOT officials said.
