WAXAHACHIE – Weather permitting, the demolition of the Brookside Road Bridge over I-35E will begin Monday, April 16.
Work entails multiple nighttime lane closures on I-35E, including full closures of both north and southbound mainlanes as well as intermittent 15-minute closures on the frontage roads — sometimes while motorists are detouring to them. The Brookside Road bridge will be closed for 60 days through reconstruction.
If any part of the operation is delayed due to weather or unforeseen circumstances, it will pick up where it left off the next night through Thursday night. There will be no makeup work on Friday night or Saturday. If needed, makeup work will begin Sunday night. For updates on the times of these closures, check out the DriveTexas website.
Motorists should expect delays and seek alternate routes. TxDOT appreciates your patience while improvements are made to this important thoroughfare. Please remember these closures are subject to change and are weather dependent.
