TEMPLE – On Tuesday, May 23, from 7 p.m. – 7 a.m. Wednesday morning, the northbound mainlanes between Central Avenue and Industrial Boulevard (about 2.3 miles) will be reduced to one lane overnight. This will allow the contractor to reset barrier and switch northbound mainlane traffic onto new pavement, and to complete the east section of the new Nugent Avenue Bridge. The work will be completed weather permitting.

Please note: The access road along this closure route is not continuous. Drivers who do not wish to go through the one-lane section are encouraged to take exit 298 to North Loop 363 at the south end of town and stay on the loop until it meets I-35 at the north end of town.
