I-35W Construction Update (5/8)

Next week North Tarrant Infrastructure will be performing bridge work at 28th St. over I-35W. In order to complete this operation all lanes of northbound and southbound I-35W at NE 28th St. will be closed Monday-Thursday, May 11-14 from 9pm-5am (nightly), as well as Friday-Saturday, May 15-16, from 9pm-10am (nightly). Wednesday, May 13 will serve as a backup date should there be inclement weather.
Northbound and southbound I-35W will be redirected along the frontage roads through the 28th St. intersection unimpeded. Eastbound 28th St. traffic will be redirected to Northside Drive, and westbound 28th St. traffic will be redirected to 33rd St. (See map above)

This Saturday: Stamp Out Hunger and Farm Fresh Market!

We wanted to spread the word about two great local events coming up this weekend:

23rd Annual Letter Carriers’ Food Drive

Fill a bag and help feed families!  It's easy to participate:

  2. Place these items by your mailbox for your letter carrier to deliver to a local food bank or pantry.
  3. That's it!  Thank you for your help.
For more information, please visit the Stamp Out Hunger website.
