Expect Closures On I-35E At Illinois Avenue This Weekend

Texas Department of Transportation

If your plans for the weekend involve traveling 1-35E in Dallas, you'll want to take note — bridge construction at Illinois Avenue will close north- and southbound lanes of I-35E.

Beginning at 9 p.m. Friday through 6 a.m. Saturday, the southbound lanes of I-35E will be closed, according to the Texas Department of Transportation. From 9 p.m. Saturday through 6 a.m. Sunday, the northbound lanes will be closed.

Traffic will be diverted onto the frontage roads during the closures.

But that's not all. All lanes of east- and westbound Illinois Avenue will also be closed nightly from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Texas Department of Transportation is suggesting using Beckley Avenue, Saner Avenue and Zang Boulevard to detour east- and westbound traffic around the Illinois Avenue closure.
