    Eastbound traffic this weekend from Dallas to Rockwall will get messy as crews continue to put up bridge beams across Interstate 30 at the President George Bush Turnpike.

    Eastbound lanes will be closed starting Friday at 8 p.m. until Monday at 4 a.m.

    Traffic will be detoured to the eastbound frontage road at Zion Road and go back to I-30 at Bass Pro Drive.

    Driver Ethan Fox said he was stuck in the traffic jam on his way to work for more than an hour and half last week. But he said he has a plan for this weekend.

    Drivers heading to Rockwall from Dallas should brace for traffic troubles this weekend. I-30 eastbound will be shut down from Zion Road to Bass Pro Drive as work continues on the President George Bush Turnpike.

    “I actually asked off this weekend for the traffic and everything,” he said.

    The Texas Department of Transportation said this is the last weekend in which eastbound lanes will be closed. Next weekend, westbound lanes will bear the brunt of closures.

    The new George Bush turnpike is expected to be completed by the end of December.
