A project to add sidewalks, lighting and bicycle trails on Main Street through Salado could be put out for bid in 2019.
James Construction Group will close NORTHBOUND I35 MAIN LANES at 7 p.m. tonight thru 7 a.m. Wednesday morning. The April 26 closure will affect the right northbound lane from Salado Plaza Drive to just north of the 2484 bridge to facilitate single slope barrier and attenuator replacement.
The closure is not expected to affect the Southbound lanes or the frontage roads, but will require the closure of a ramp in the affected area.
It’s time for drastic and unprecedented action concerning I-35 construction in Bell County.
In the past week, Salado first responders were called out about a dozen times to accidents in the congested construction areas of I-35. Meanwhile Temple first responders were called out to accident that closed the highway for hours in the northern part of Bell County.
James Construction crews will begin work this week on connecting Salado Plaza to Williams Drive on the west side of I-35, which will require the closure of the N. Main St./FM 2268 cross-under of the I-35 mainlanes.
Traffic flows at north Main Street will change with construction of Salado Plaza interface
James Construction will begin the construction of the Salado Plaza section of the I-35 expansion through Salado in August.
To prepare Saladoans for the changes in traffic flows required for this construction, Texas Department of Transportation (TXDOT) will host a community meeting 6-8 p.m. July 23 at the Salado High School Cafeteria.
