Guided tour of this weekend's I-35 closure

By now you've heard of our planned full closure of I-35 between George Beach and Rittiman Road. Well, we hope you've heard by now.
We got a guided tour of the closure and the detour from Assistant Area Engineer Hieu Tong earlier today and broadcast it via Twitter. Here's the video of that tour.
This is the LAST major closure of I-35 for this project, which wraps up at the end of this year. We'll have overnight closures between George Beach and Randolph Boulevard, but nothing as major as this weekend's full closure.
If you didn't catch it, by the way, those ramps between Walzem and Eisenhauer we are rebuilding should open by early fall this year.
