A $3.1 million Texas Department of Transportation construction project on I-35E in Denton County began on Tuesday.
Full-depth concrete repair work has begun on southbound I-35E, starting with the frontage road between Hwy 377 and Teasley Lane, a TxDOT news release said. Completing both frontage road sections in both directions should take about three weeks, weather permitting, according to a TxDOT spokesperson.
Once that work is completed, crews will move to perform concrete repair on FM 3040 — between I-35E and Hwy 121 — and a section of FM 407 from FM 2499 to the southbound I-35E frontage road.
The entire project is expected to be completed in spring 2023, according to TxDOT. All work will be conducted overnight, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sundays through Fridays. Drivers should use caution and expect various lane closures during this time.
