WACO, TX — TxDOT has announced several upcoming construction activities and closures for the Waco 4B project.

Crews will continue removing the southbound I-35 mainlanes over BUS 77 in preparation for reconstructing the roadway.

Lane closures for this work are anticipated to be in place nightly from Tuesday, Feb. 4 at 7 p.m. to Sunday, Feb. 9 at 6 a.m.

East and westbound BUS 77 under I-35 will be closed to all traffic.

During this time the southbound I-35 frontage road near BUS 77 will be reduced to one lane.

The frontage road will also be intermittently closed to all traffic and drivers will be directed to use westbound BUS 77.

Crews are also widening the southbound I-35 mainlanes over N Loop 340.

To conduct this work, the east and westbound lanes of N Loop 340 under I-35 will be closed beginning as early as 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 6 to 6 a.m. Friday, Feb 7.

Westbound traffic on N Loop 340 will need to use the northbound frontage road and Meyers Lane to cross under I-35, and eastbound traffic will need to use Behrens Circle. Signage has been placed to inform motorists in advance of the closures, and to direct them during this work.

TxDOT says crews will implement this closure again within the next few weeks as paving work continues.
