Westbound traffic is down to one lane near Collins Street through Cooper Street this weekend and is being detoured onto the I-30 eastbound lanes around Cooper Street so work crews can improve drainage along the highway, the state Transportation Department said.
The I-30 westbound exit ramp to Cooper Street is closed in conjunction with the work from 7 p.m. Friday to 5 p.m. Sunday, the agency reported on its Web site, www.keep30moving.org/. Alternate exits are Collins or Ballpark Way.
Eastbound I-30 at Fielder Road through Cooper Street is also down to one lane for the same reason during the same period, the Transportation Department said.
The eastbound entrance ramp at Cooper Street will be closed. The agency warns of major delays, and advises that motorists seek alternate routes.
