Portion of Interstate 35E Through Dallas to Be Closed Over the Weekend

Highway to be closed from Friday night until Monday morning

A section of Interstate 35E in Dallas will be closed over the weekend while construction crews work to remove an overpass.

All northbound and southbound lanes will be shut down at Beckley Avenue starting at 9 p.m. Friday. The closures will remain in place until 5 a.m. Monday.

The Zang Boulevard and 12th Street overpasses will also be temporarily closed during that time for safety reasons.

Drivers are asked to plan for delays or find alternate routes around the construction zone.

All lanes of Interstate 35-E at Beckley Avenue will be closed this weekend starting at 9 p.m. Friday. The lanes will reopen 5 a.m. Monday to remove the overpass bridge. The Zang Boulevard and 12th Street overpasses at I-35E will also be temporarily closed.

The Beckley Avenue overpass removal is part of the $666 million Southern Gateway Project, which will widen I-35E between Colorado Avenue and Highway 67.

Project officials said several overpasses will have to be widened and reconfigured before crews can begin work on the main lanes below.

Once the old Beckley Avenue overpass is removed, crews will spend the next 18 months building a new overpass that will be compatible with the new highway.
