I-40 to be Closed in Both Directions over the Weekend


Your weekend commute could be a lot longer than expected.

Texas Department of Transportation says I-40 will close in both directions at Bell Street one more time this weekend.

They say it is to safely facilitate demolition of the main Bell Street bridge.

Officials tell us traffic will exit to the frontage roads in both directions at Bell Street and re-enter the interstate past the bridge.

The transition of traffic onto the frontage roads will begin tomorrow at 7 p.m., with full closure of the interstate expected by 9 p.m.

You are encouraged to find alternate routes.

We’re told I-40 is expected to reopen Monday at 6 a.m.
