Eye On Traffic: February 11-17
CBSDFW.COM’s Eye On Traffic blog gets you ready for your commute all week long. Every Friday afternoon we tell you about the hotspots you need to avoid in the coming week.
KRLD’s Julie Fisk covers Dallas and Collin Counties:
The Sci-Fi Expo is happening all this weekend so watch out for traffic along 114 & NW Hwy by the Irving Convention Center. It will get especially busy on Saturday (2/11) when Eliza Dushku makes her appearance.
Kelly Clarkson is at Verizon Theater tonight (2/10) so you’ll see delays along I-30 east & westbound through Grand Prairie.
The Dallas Mavs will play the Portland Trailblazers Saturday night at 7:30, so expect delays all around the American Airlines Center before the game. They’re also playing at home on Monday & Wednesday nights & the Dallas Stars will be playing the Kings there on Sunday night too.
Those orange construction barrels will be cluttering the roads again this weekend.
Various lanes will be closed on Woodall Rogers East & Westbound from 9pm to 6am nightly for work on the deck park. The Woodall Rogers Westbound exit ramp to St. Paul will also be closed daily.
Some lanes of 75 North & Southbound between El Dorado Parkway and White Avenue will be closed Friday and Saturday nights, from 9pm to 6am the following day.
If you ever get stuck in a major back-up and need some answers, remember that KRLD always has Traffic & Weather reports on the ‘8s. Drive Safely!
CBS 11’s Teresa Frosini covers Tarrant and Denton Counties:
DFW CONNECTOR: It’s another big weekend around the airport this weekend. The demolition of Texan Trail Bridge was rescheduled from last weekend to this weekend. Hwy 114 will be closed in both direction at Texan Trail from Fri 8pm – Mon 6am.
CHISHOLM TRAIL PKWY: Expect to see changes in southwest Ft. Worth over the next three weeks. The major route through southwest Fort Worth will be detoured between Bryant Irvin Road and Interstate 20. This weekend, weather permitting, eastbound Texas 183 traffic will be switched to the new detour.
Here’s what’s happening around town this weekend. The Orginal Gun Show comes to the Will Rogers Memorial Center Feb 11th and 12th.
Of course Tuesday is Valentine’s day which means a lot of people heading out to eat Tuesday night. Expect delays around downtown Ft. Worth.
