A slow go in the IH 635 construction zone is going to get slower.

If it s in your power this weekend to avoid the intersection of I-635 and I-35, you're going to want to avoid it.

We re gonna be setting steel beams. Actually, a million pounds of steel beams to be exact, said Heather DeLapp the Public Relations Manager with LBJ Express which is building the project.

As a result, Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights the eastbound lane of 635 will be closed. Passengers looking to merge onto I-35, to the north or the south, will be diverted.

We just ask folks to be patient and expect delays, DeLapp said.

And it won t be the last time they ask.

Later this month, the entire 635 and 35 interchange will be shut down for a weekend in all directions as this massive project continues to unfold.
