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.
The first half hour of the meeting will allow citizens to look over the schematics of the plans for the I-35 overpass at Salado Plaza which will be a complete reconfiguration of this section of the project.
The plans call for Salado Plaza extending west past Main Street, intersecting at the northbound access road and passing under I-35 and connecting to the southbound access road on the west side of the interstate.
Maps of the new traffic flows for Main Street, the access roads and the intersections of Salado Plaza Dr. and Mill Creek Dr. into North Main will be on display.
John Habermann, I-35 Lead Mobility Coordinator and Jodi Wheatly I-35 information specialist are expected at the meeting.
TXDOT may announce plans to meet a new scheduled completion date of Dec. 31 2015 for the expansion project through Salado. At the last town hall meeting, the completion date was pushed back from to August 2016.
