Northbound lanes of I35 from north of Temple through Troy are scheduled for nightly closures February 6 through 9 as construction crews set beams on a new bridge.

From 7 PM to 7 AM Monday through Thursday night, traffic will detour onto a single lane of the northbound frontage road at Exit 306, FM 1237/Pendleton Road.

Police will direct traffic back onto I35 at FM935/Main Street in Troy.

TxDOT is encouraging drivers to find alternative routes, as long delays are expected. Jodi Wheatley with TxDOT said closures may end early some nights if work is completed before 7 AM.
