The first bridge demolition in the reshaping of the Interstate 635/Texas 121 interchange in Grapevine will again close sections of highways there this weekend, the company handling the work said.
A small portion of the old northbound Texas 26 bridge to northbound Texas 121 still needs to be removed after much of it was demolished last weekend. A new bridge has opened.
More bridge demolitions are planned this summer, the project’s lead contractor, NorthGate Constructors, said.
Grapevine is a merge point for six highways and is one of the most congested corridors in North Texas.
From 8 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Monday, the following will be closed:
- Northbound Texas 26 off-ramp to northbound Texas 121. Traffic will be detoured to Bass Pro Drive.
- Southbound Texas 121 frontage road at Grapevine Mills Trail. Traffic will be detoured to Texas 26.
- Southbound Texas 121/Farm to Market Road 2499 off-ramp to Interstate 635/Bass Pro Drive.
- Two right lanes Texas 121 at Farm to Market Road 2499.
