Motorists in far north Fort Worth, Haltom City, Keller, Watauga and other parts of Northeast Tarrant County may have to deal with a serious traffic headache this weekend. North Beach Street will be shut down at Northeast Loop 820 between 8 p.m. Friday and 4 a.m. Monday in Haltom City.
It's one of the biggest closures yet in the $2.1 billion North Tarrant Express project, which includes the reconstruction of the 13-mile 820/Texas 121/183 corridor.
That project is expected to continue through mid-2015.
"Closing this section of Beach Street will allow crews to start preparing for reconstruction of the 820 overpass," said Lara Kohl, spokeswoman for Bluebonnet Contractors Llc..
Never miss a local story.
Drivers will be detoured to Haltom Road or Mark IV Parkway, where they can U-turn and continue on the frontage roads -- but probably at a cost of several minutes.
