Schedules are dependent on weather, field conditions and work progress. Follow TxDOT on Twitter @TxDOTWaco for the most current updates on construction activities and lane closures, and visit www.waco4bmap.org for real-time pedestrian path and traffic information.
National Work Zone Awareness Week starts next Monday, April 26. Remember, not all work zones look the same. TxDOT is reconstructing the Brazos River Bridge at I-35 in Waco, making the river in this section a work zone too. Avoid the area if you can, and if you must pass under the bridge, watch out for falling debris and listen to flaggers, as they are there to help you pass safely. Be Safe. Drive Smart.
