FROM SUBMITTED REPORTS
This just in from Texas Department of Transportation spokesperson Kelli Reyna:
Construction crews will close the northbound lower deck main lanes of Interstate 35 from 12th Street to Airport Boulevard, as well as one northbound lane on the Interstate 35 upper deck in Austin, from 11 p.m. Wednesday, May 4 to 5 a.m. Thursday, May 5.
The closures are necessary to repair damaged concrete railing on the bridge and to ensure driver’s safety while work is taking place on the bridges. Crews will re-open the lanes sooner if work is finished early.
Heavy delays are expected. Road signs have been placed to alert drivers of the closure. Motorists should allow extra time to travel through this area during the affected hours. TxDOT asks the traveling public to be patient and remain aware when traveling through the work zone.
