The Texas Department of Transportation closed Oct. 27 the FM 3406 bridge for widening and reconstruction for approximately 10 months, weather permitting. Drivers heading westbound will detour to the newly constructed FM 3406 U-turn bridge to cross I-35. Drivers on eastbound FM 3406 will detour to the southbound frontage road and use the U-turn at US 79. A map of recommended detour routes is included below.
In addition to the detour, bridge construction will require overnight closures to I-35 mainlanes for the setting of beams and concrete pours. Road signs will be placed to alert drivers of closures. Drivers should be patient, allow extra time and remain aware when traveling through the work zone.
Once the bridge reopens, the majority of the bridge work will be complete. There will be two lanes in each direction, as well as left and right turn lanes to the I-35 frontage road from FM 3406.
