Temple: Lane closure set for I-35 Monday

Drivers traveling Interstate 35 through Temple should prepare for road closures this week.

According to the Texas Department of Transportation, there will be full mainlane closures starting Monday at 7 p.m. and will end the next morning at 7:00.

This applies to the southbound mainlanes between the Hart/Berger Rd crossing and Spur 290/Industrial Blvd.

All traffic will detour to the access road at Exit #304 south of the Hart/Berger crossing and will re-enter the mainlanes near the Spur 290 crossing.

The closure will allow crews to reset concrete barrier through the area, so work can proceed on the remaining tasks before opening the lanes in their final configuration.

TxDot reminded the public Sunday to drive carefully and remember to obey the traffic signs in the area.

Traffic fines double in work zones.
