Full I-35E Mainlane Closure at 8th Street, June 9-11

Filed under: Community |

DALLAS – All lanes of north and southbound I-35E at 8th Street will be closed this weekend, June 9 through June 11, for bridge removal of the 8th Street overpass.

The mainlane closure will begin at 9 p.m. on Saturday, June 9 and will last until 6 a.m. on Monday, June 11. North and southbound I-35E traffic will be diverted to the 8th Street exits in both directions to avoid the full mainlane closure. Drivers will be able to re-enter the mainlanes using the entrance ramps after the intersection.

Drivers should expect delays and plan their commutes in advance during the mainlane closures. Construction activities and lane closures are subject to change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

Due to the full reconstruction of the 8th Street bridge over I-35E as part of The Southern Gateway project, there will be a long-term closure of 8th Street at I-35E beginning Monday, June 4 lasting about six months. 8th Street traffic will use Colorado Boulevard or 10th Street as detours throughout the duration of 8th Street overpass construction.

The public can stay up-to-date on construction progress, lane closures and traffic changes by signing up for text alerts by sending the message “The Southern Gateway” to 31996.
