Eye On Traffic: May 5-11
By Julie Fisk, KRLD
The Fresh Beat Band has two shows this Sunday at Verizon Theatre, so there will be big delays through Grand Prairie around the showtimes. If you don’t know who The Fresh Beat Band is, then you must not have small children. They’re like the younger, slightly hipper Wiggles.
The right lane of Interstate-635 eastbound and westbound will be closed between the Dallas North Tollway and Montfort Drive overnight until May 12. The exit ramp from Interstate-635 eastbound and westbound to Inwood Road/Dallas Parkway will be closed nightly as well until May 13.
The left lane of Northwest Highway from Trammel Drive to Buckner Boulevard will be closed during the day to install new light poles.
Various lanes of Woodall Rodgers Freeway eastbound and westbound will be closed nightly between Highway 75 & Interstate-35E for work on the deck park.
Various lanes of Highway 75 northbound will be closed nightly from Highway 121 to Virginia Parkway. That will start at 9:00 p.m. and clear around 6:00 a.m. the next day.
It’s important to know before you go, so get the latest traffic and weather updates on the 8s at 1080 AM KRLD.
