I-35W bridge work in north Fort Worth rescheduled

Weather delayed previously scheduled lane closures for Interstate 35W at the Decatur cutoff. Work is now planned for Monday and Tuesday nights.

The scheduled installation of new bridge beams on Interstate 35W at the U.S. 81-287 split was postponed this week because of the weather, a spokesman for the Texas Department of Transportation said Friday.

Weather permitting, the work will be done overnight Monday and Tuesday.

Southbound lanes of I-35W are scheduled to be shut down at U.S. 81/287 from 9 p.m. Monday to 6 a.m. Tuesday, and again from 9 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday.

Crews will be installing bridge beams for a new ramp from northbound lanes of the freeway to U.S. 81/287 (also known as the Decatur cutoff), said spokesman Michael Peters.

Southbound drivers will detour to U.S. 81/287 northbound to Harmon Road to U.S. 81/287 southbound back to I-35W southbound, Peters said.

Police officers will be present to direct traffic. — Staff report
