BELTON (July 16, 2013)--The rain has been the cause for some delays on I-35 southbound Monday and Tuesday.
According to I-35 Information Specialist Jodi Wheatley, on Monday ponding water on the interstate had resulted in the closure of the left mainlane near Highway 190/FM 436 in Belton.
The lane closure continues to be in place with no estimated time for it to open back up.
Wheatley said Tuesday that TxDOT was working with engineers to fix the issue but the lane will remain closed until then.
Traffic delays are expected for Tuesday evening and drivers are advised to use an alternate route if possible.
