The county’s contractor Hunter Industries is scheduled to set up various lane closures on the northbound and southbound main lanes of IH 35 on Monday night, February 2, 2015, from 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Tuesday morning.  The lane closures will be located from approximately one mile north and south of the FM 2243 (Leander Road) Overpass.  The northbound lane closures are necessary for removing the portable concrete traffic barriers from the right shoulder and restriping the main lanes.  The restriping will shift the lanes to the right side of the roadway.  This shift will allow the contractor to work in the center median of IH 35 to construct the columns for the new southbound/northbound turnaround bridge over IH 35 alongside the current FM 2243 (Leander Road) overpass.  
The contractor also will set up lane closures on the southbound main lanes to reset the portable concrete traffic barriers along the inside shoulder of the center median.  The southbound main lanes will not be shifted.    
After the northbound lanes have been restriped, the contractor will set portable concrete traffic barriers on the inside shoulder for the center column construction.
Electronic message boards are set to provide advance notification to the public for these closures and off duty police officers will be on site for assistance.
