Eye On Traffic: March 31 – April 6
DALLAS COUNTY & COLLIN COUNTY
By Julie Fisk, KRLD
The Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge is open this weekend. Have fun driving across the “Large Marge!”
The Dallas Mavs are about to launch a stretch at home. They’re playing at the American Airlines Center on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The Dallas Stars will play their last two home games this season on Tuesday and next Saturday, so expect to see traffic around the AAC nightly.
The Interstate-635 eastbound left lane will be closed between Midway and Welch from 8:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. until April 5.
Alternating lanes will be closed on Highway 75 north and southbound from Eldorado to White Street from 9:00 p.m. until 6:00 a.m. Sunday morning.
They are still closing various lanes nightly on Woodall Rogers between Pearl and St. Paul for work on the deck park. Those close at 9:00 p.m. and re-open around 6:00 a.m.
Spring weather is getting nutty and that’s certain to affect traffic, so make sure you’re listening to Traffic and Weather on the 8s on 1080AM KRLD.
