    There is a lot of construction scheduled to go on this weekend across the Dallas-Fort Worth area.

    Here are the top three construction zones to watch out for this weekend:


    The LBJ Express project will be replacing HOV signs. Rolling closures on Interstate 635 were scheduled to begin Friday night at 9 p.m. and continue through early Saturday. Expect delays. 21 signs will be replaced.

    Fort Worth

    Interstate 35W will be closing in both directions between Western Center Boulevard to US 81/287. This will take place during the day on Saturday and Sunday from 6 a.m. - 9p.m. both days.
