Parts of both I-35 and MoPac closing this weekend

The Texas Department of Transportation will be closing down both North and South Lanes of I-35 from 11:00 pm to 10 am on Friday and Saturday Night.  TXDOT posted the following information to their Facebook page.

**AUSTIN ALERT**

Both directions of I-35 at Slaughter Creek will be closed this Friday and Saturday nights (June 24 and 25) from 11 p.m. until 10 a.m at the Slaughter Creek overpass (exit 226).

Traffic will be detoured to the frontage roads in both directions. Crews will be demolishing a bridge , weather permitting.
