Traffic delays in Texas just aren't fun, let's be real here. With so many individuals in a concentrated area, there's bound to be a time where everyone is one area to slow down commutes. So to help alleviate the traffic that is continuously growing, roads are updated to help keep things moving.

However, for these roads to grow, there will be growing pains of course. Those pains will be coming very soon for those on I-35 as well. According to my35construction, I-35 is a very congested roadway.

Sitting at nearly 50 years old, the roadway needs improvements, and while they are working on them, closures will occur to remove certain parts. One part of the area being removed is the Williams Drive Bridge.

Williams Drive Bridge Removal And Subsequent Road Closures

KXAN has the details about what parts of the roadway will be closed:

While closures will happen, they will occur over the next two weekends in Austin. On January 20th-21st, and January 27th-28th the following parts of the roadways will be diverted accordingly:

- Northbound I-35 traffic will detour to the frontage road at the Williams Drive exit (262) and re-enter the main lanes north of Northwest Boulevard
- Southbound I-35 traffic will use the Williams Drive exit (262) and re-enter the main lanes north of SH 29

The Williams Drive Bridge, which is set to be closed due to the demolition, which will also have detours for drivers, which you can see here.

So for Central Texas to grow, we'll all have to put on our brave faces and drive safely.
