Williamson County’s contractor Hunter Industries is scheduled to set up a nighttime closure of two inside lanes on the southbound mainlanes of IH 35 and one inside lane of the northbound mainlanes of IH 35 on Thursday night, July 2, from 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. Friday morning. Both the southbound and northbound mainlanes of IH 35 will be impacted. The closure on the southbound side will be located from south of Williams Drive to past Leander Road (RM 2243) and on the northbound side from SE Inner Loop Road to past Leander Road. Expect delays on the southbound and northbound mainlanes. This closure is necessary to remove the portable concrete traffic barrier rail at the columns of the new SB/NB turnaround bridge over IH 35.
The lane closure on the southbound IH 35 mainlanes will consist of dropping the number of lanes from three lanes to just one outside lane. The closure will end just past Leander Road (RM 2243). During this closure on IH 35 southbound mainlanes, the entrance ramp between SH 29 and Leander Road (RM 2243) will be closed and southbound frontage road traffic will be required to continue south through Leander Road (RM 2243) and enter southbound IH 35. It is required to close this entrance ramp because it is located within the limits of the lane closure.
The lane closure on the northbound IH 35 mainlanes will consist of closing the inside lane only. No ramps will be affected during this closure.
Every precaution will be taken to ensure the safety of the traveling public and the workers during this operation. 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.
