AUSTIN –Crews will be making traffic changes on several I-35 ramps between San Marcos and Kyle starting on Monday, June 19 through Friday, June 23. All work will take place in the overnight hours of 9 p.m. and 5 a.m.
On Monday night, crews will open the new northbound Yarrington Road exit 210 ramp located 1.6 miles south of Yarrington Road. The existing Yarrington Road ramp will be permanently closed to traffic. The right lane of I-35 will be closed to traffic during the switch.
On Wednesday night, June 21, the new northbound FM 150 exit 213 ramp, located 0.2 miles north of Yarrington Road, will be open to traffic. The existing FM 150 ramp will then be permanently closed. During the changeover, the right lane of I-35 will be closed.
On Thursday night, June 22, the new northbound I-35 entrance ramp (0.5 miles south of FM 150) will be open to traffic. The right lane of I-35 will be closed to traffic during the switch. (See attached illustration for greater detail.)
This ramp reversal project from the Blanco River to FM 150 switches traffic onto three new northbound ramps and permanently closes two existing ramps to better accommodate the flow of traffic. Work on the $9 million project is expected to continue through this summer, weather permitting. The contractor is Angel Brother Enterprises.
