The night time lane closure on IH 35 scheduled for Sunday, April 26, has been cancelled and rescheduled for Sunday, May 3. At that time, Williamson County’s contractor Hunter Industries is scheduled to set up a nighttime closure of two lanes on the northbound and southbound mainlanes of IH 35 on Sunday night, May 3, 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Monday morning.  Both the northbound and southbound mainlanes of IH 35 will be impacted.  The northbound closure will be located from north of Westinghouse Road to south of SH 29.  The southbound closure will be located from south of Williams Drive to S.E. Inner Loop Road.  Expect delays on the mainlanes in both directions.
This closure is necessary to set precast concrete deck panels and erect the deck form brackets on the new southbound to northbound turnaround bridge over IH 35.
The closure will temporarily reduce the mainlanes from three lanes to a single lane in each direction. Exit and entrance ramps located within the limits of the lane closures on the IH 35 mainlanes also will be closed.

During the closure on the IH 35 northbound mainlanes the SH 29 exit ramp will be closed for a period of time, and traffic will proceed to the Williams Drive/RM 2338 exit and use the turnaround to get back to SH 29.
During the closure on IH 35 southbound mainlanes, the entrance ramp between SH 29 and Leander Road/RM 2243 will be closed. Southbound frontage road traffic will be required to continue south through Leander Road/RM 2243 to enter southbound IH 35.  
Every precaution will be taken to ensure the safety of the traveling public and the workers during this operation.  At least three police officers will be on hand to provide a significant presence on the project during this closure. Electronic message boards will be set to provide advance notification to the public for this lane closure.
