I-35 Mainlanes at FM 1103 to Close for Bridge Demolition

The Texas Department of Transportation will close the I-35 mainlanes to north and southbound traffic from 9 p.m. on Saturday, July 14, until 3 p.m. on Sunday, July 15 to demolish the bridge at FM 1103. I-35 northbound traffic will exit to the frontage road at FM 1103. Traffic will remain on the frontage road through FM 1103 and re-enter the highway. I-35 southbound traffic will exit to the frontage road at FM 1103 and re-enter the highway at the entrance ramp past FM 1103.

The new portion of the FM 1103 bridge will be open to westbound traffic only, once demolition of the old bridge is complete. Eastbound traffic will need to travel south to FM 2252, and U-turn to FM 1103. The eastbound portion of the bridge will be complete by spring 2019. 

Road signs have been placed to alert drivers of the upcoming closure. TxDOT asks the traveling public to adhere to construction signage and remain aware when traveling through the work zone. 

The $7.2 million project consists of expanding the FM 1103 bridge over I-35 to five lanes, plus U-turn bridges and will be complete in summer 2019.
