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.
