All northbound main lanes will close overnight Friday and Saturday.

The northbound main lanes of Interstate 35 through North Austin will close overnight this weekend so crews can demolish the St. Johns Avenue bridge and U-turn bridge. 

From 10 p.m. Friday to 9 a.m. Saturday and again from 10 p.m. Saturday to 10 a.m. Sunday, northbound drivers will be forced to exit the interstate at exit 239, TxDOT said.

The northbound I-35 to northbound US 183 flyover, US 183 frontage roads under I-35 and the left southbound I-35 main lane through the construction zone will also close.

The new St. Johns Avenue bridge will open, along with two new U-turn bridges, in late summer, TxDOT said. 

Last weekend, half of I-35's main lanes were closed the entire weekend. You can read more about closures planned for later this month and get more information on this project at My35Construction.org
