All lanes of north- and south-bound I-35 will be closed Aug. 9-10 at Route 291 while crews demolish the old 291 bridge. Route 291 between Church Road and Glenn Hendren Drive will also be closed. Interstate traffic will be detoured around the 291 bridge using the on- and off-ramps. Route 291 traffic will be directed west on Route 152 to Church Road.
In addition to the new bridge, this project includes:
-- New I-35 on- and off-ramps that are closer to the Route 291 bridge.-- A new, third through-lane on north-bound Route 291 from Glenn Hendren Drive to Ash Street.-- A right turn lane on south-bound Route 291 between the intersection of Church Road to the south-bound ramp to I-35.-- Additional turn lanes at Ash/96th onto Route 291.-- An additional left-turn lane on Glenn Hendren Drive to south-bound Route 291.-- A total of eight new lanes.-- A 10-foot, multi-use path on the north side of the bridge for pedestrians and cyclists.
