Anyone planing to drive down I-35 in Temple Wednesday and Thursday night should plan alternate routes, all lanes will be closed down for construction.

TxDOT says the closures will happen Wednesday night, 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. on Thursday, and Thursday night, 9 p.m. to 7 a.m. on Friday.

Both closures are for continued construction on the new Spur 290 Bridge across I-35. 

Northbound traffic is expected to be detoured to the southbound main lanes and southbound drivers will be detoured to the southbound frontage road. 

TxDOT says due to the time frame of the closures, travelers should avoid the area.
