Beach Street at Loop 820 closed this weekend

Construction shuts all lanes under Loop 820.

All lanes of Beach Street under Northeast Loop 820 will be closed from 9 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday.

Southbound traffic will detour east on Fossil Vista Drive to the westbound 820 on-ramp, travel west on 820 to southbound Interstate 35W and make a U-turn at Meacham Boulevard.

Northbound traffic will detour east on Northern Cross Boulevard to Haltom Road, then travel north on Haltom Road to the westbound 820 frontage road and go north on Fossil Vista Drive to North Beach Street.

This is part of the $2.5 billion North Tarrant Express project, scheduled for completion in mid-2015. The work includes new main lanes and frontage roads and the addition of toll lanes on 13.5 miles of Loop 820 and Airport Freeway.

Go to for project updates, closures and alternative routes.
