DALLAS – Two outside lanes of southbound State Highway 183 will close from north of Mockingbird Lane to Commonwealth Drive from 6 a.m.-1 p.m. Sunday.
In addition, the inside lane of southbound Interstate 35E will close from north of Mockingbird Lane to the merge with southbound SH 183.
Weather permitting, crews will close multiple lanes in the I-35E/SH 183 area so that the contractor, Gibson Associates, can continue making needed repairs to the Trinity Railway Express bridge over the highway. With the closures, traffic still will be able to use three inside lanes under the TRE bridge.
Rain delayed the start of the scheduled bridge repairs May 16, but crews were able to complete 75 percent of the required work. More time, however, is needed to finish the project.
Message boards and detour signs have been placed along the highways notifying motorists of the upcoming closure. Police will assist with traffic control during the closure.
The TRE is jointly operated by Dallas Area Rapid Transit and the Fort Worth Transportation Authority.
