Dallas – Traffic switches scheduled for this weekend will reconfigure traffic on both westbound and eastbound main lanes around Marsh Lane. They will also mark the beginning of the long-term closure of the eastbound on-ramp from Webb Chapel.
The LBJ team will be shifting traffic along the westbound lanes from Friday, Feb. 28 at 9 pm to Saturday, March 1 at 10 a.m.
To perform the switch, traffic will be reduced to one lane between Midway Road and Webb Chapel Road. The westbound on-ramp from Midway, as well as the westbound exit to Webb Chapel will also be closed. The listed closures will be restored by 10 a.m. the following day.
On Saturday, March 1 at 7 p.m., LBJ will begin the shift that will move eastbound traffic to the north. Traffic will be reduced to one lane between I-35E and Rosser Road. The eastbound exit to Marsh Lane, as well as the eastbound on-ramp from Webb Chapel will be closed during the switch.
By noon on Sunday, March 2, all closures regarding the eastbound I-635 shift should be restored, with exception to the eastbound on-ramp from Webb Chapel, which will remain closed until 2015.
Traffic along the eastbound frontage road coming from Webb Chapel will be able to use the on-ramp from Marsh Lane in order to re-enter eastbound I-635, throughout the duration of the long-term closure. The purpose of the closure is to construct the permanent lanes in this area.
Message boards and signs will be placed along the roadway to advise motorists of the closures and detours. Drivers should anticipate delays and may want to seek alternate routes. Closures are subject to weather and scheduling conditions and will be postponed if necessary.
