Drivers Should Expect Full Main Lane Closures On US 183 At I-35 In Travis County

AUSTIN – The Texas Department of Transportation will alternate full weekend closures of northbound and southbound US 183 at I-35 over two weekends in July in order to set large steel beams for a new flyover at US 183, weather permitting.

Beginning Friday, July 19, at 9 PM until Monday, July 22, at 5 AM, the northbound US 183 mainlanes will be closed north of Cameron Road. TxDOT recommends drivers use US 290 to avoid the closure.

Main Lane detour:

  • Northbound US 183 traffic will exit for US 290 East just north of Manor/Springdale Drive, continue northbound on the US 183 frontage road and turn left on the US 290 East frontage road to access I-35. Once on I-35, drivers may take the northbound I-35 to northbound US 183 flyover

 

  • US 183 drivers will be able to exit after Cameron Road for Lamar Boulevard; however, they will be subject to a frontage road detour

 

  • The US 290 flyovers to US 183 (both north and southbound) will also be closed this weekend. Drivers will follow westbound US 290 East to gain access to I-35 and US 183 north. Drivers on westbound US 290 East will exit Berkman Drive and take the turnaround to gain access to US 183 south

Frontage road detours:

  • The northbound US 183 frontage road will be closed at I-35. Drivers will turn right at the northbound I-35 frontage road, take the turnaround at Rundberg Lane, and head south on the southbound I-35 frontage road to access US 183

 

  • The northbound I-35 frontage road will be closed at US 183. Drivers will turn right at the southbound US 183 frontage road, take the turnaround at Cameron Road, and head north on the northbound US 183 frontage road to access I-35  

Beginning Friday, July 26, at 9 PM until Monday, July 29, at 5 AM, the southbound US 183 mainlanes will be closed at I-35. TxDOT recommends drivers use US 290 East to avoid the closure.

Main Lane detour:

  • Southbound US 183 traffic will exit for southbound I-35 and then take US 290 East to access US 183

Frontage road detours:

  • The southbound US 183 frontage road will be closed at I-35. Drivers will turn right at the southbound I-35 frontage road and take US 290 East to access US 183

 

  • To access northbound I-35, drivers on southbound US 183 will turn right at the southbound I-35 frontage road and take the turnaround at US 290 East

Drivers are encouraged to plan ahead as major delays are expected.

Road signs have been placed to alert drivers of the upcoming closures. TxDOT asks the traveling public to be patient and remain aware when traveling through the work zone. To learn more about this project, visit My35Construction.org.
