|Later this month crews will hang bridge support beams over the northbound lanes of I-35, using these support columns and caps. This work will require the complete closure of northbound I-35 for at least a few hours.|
While this closure directly impacts I-35, drivers on northbound I-410 should also be impacted by this. Southbound lanes will be left relatively unscathed.
|When the northbound lanes of I-35 are closed, traffic will be rerouted along the northbound I-35 and northbound I-410 frontage roads through Rittiman Road.|
Though not as major as closing main lanes of an interstate, crews will close the north-to-south turnaround at Rittiman Road tonight to give crews safe access to retaining walls as the main lanes of the highway are expanded. The south-to-north turnaround will close in a few weeks. Both closures are long-term, lasting into the summer. Traffic will use the intersection to turn around.
|When the turnarounds at Rittiman Road close (this week), more traffic will be moving through the intersections. The signals will be adjusted accordingly to optimize traffic flow.|
Meanwhile, work outside the traveling lanes continue in a number of areas: bridge support columns and caps at Thousand Oaks; setting barrier at Rittiman; bridge support structures at the I-410 interchange; road widening at several locations.
|Several areas, such as this new configuration for the northbound exit to Randolph Boulevard and Windcrest, are underway behind barriers and away from the traveling public.|
