All lanes of the Corporate Drive bridge over Interstate 35E will be continuously closed through 6 a.m., Friday, Feb. 24. The initial closure was to remove one of the original supporting columns and replace it with two new ones. The closure extension is needed to complete additional renovations to the original structure.
Detours are as follows (click here for a detour map):
- Eastbound Corporate Drive traffic will turn right onto the southbound I-35E frontage road and travel south to FM 3040/Round Grove Road, turn left onto FM 3040/Round Grove Road. Take FM 3040/Round Grove Road to the northbound frontage road. Continue on the frontage road to Corporate Drive.
- Westbound Corporate Drive traffic will travel turn right onto the northbound frontage road and travel to the north- to southbound U-turn lane at State Highway 121 Business. Travel along the southbound frontage road to Corporate Drive.
During the closure, crews will adjust the substructure of the bridge to accommodate the widening of the interstate.
This work is related to the 35Express project, an expansion of I-35E between U.S. Highway 380 in Denton County and I-635 in Dallas County. All closures are subject to weather conditions and may be postponed, if necessary.
