Final Traffic

WACO, Texas (Feb. 21, 2022) – The Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) has rescheduled the northbound I-35 mainlane traffic shift from US 84/Waco Drive to N Loop 340 due to expected weather events this week. These are among the final traffic shifts for the I-35 project through Waco, which is anticipated being completed by early 2023.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:

Two traffic shifts are planned to move all northbound traffic to the newly reconstructed northbound mainlanes. The first shift will be north of the Baylor campus from US 84/Waco Drive to N Loop 340.

Monday, Feb. 28, to Friday, March 4, from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.

  • To prepare for the first shift, TxDOT plans to close alternating northbound mainlanes north of campus from N Loop 340 to Craven Avenue and the northbound I-35 entrance ramp near N Loop 340 nightly Monday, Feb. 28, to Friday, March 4, from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m.

Monday, Feb. 28, to Friday, March 4, from 5 p.m. to 6 a.m.

  • Crews also plan to close the northbound exit ramp to N Loop 340 (Exit 339) nightly Monday, Feb. 28, to Friday, March 4, from 5 p.m. to 6 a.m. These closures will allow crews to move barriers, stripe and shift traffic onto the newly reconstructed lanes.

All northbound traffic from US 84/Waco Drive to N Loop 340 is expected to be shifted with ramps open by Friday morning. Traffic will remain two lanes in each direction as crews complete work on the inside north and southbound I-35 mainlanes.
