Eye On Traffic: May 26 – June 1
By Julie Fisk, KRLD
The ‘Welcome Home Hollie Cavanagh Parade’ is happening in McKinney on Saturday morning at 10:00 a.m. so expect closures all around the historic downtown area.
The CityArts Festival is going on all weekend long, so you will see more congestion than usual around Fair Park.
The Texas Rangers have home games at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington nightly until Wednesday. Expect delays on Interstate-30 and around the ballpark near game time.
A big show is coming to the American Airlines Center next Friday. Nickelback, Bush, Seether and My Darkest Days are playing on June 1, so traffic in that area will be backed up that night.
The left lane of eastbound Interstate-635 will be closed nightly between Luna Road and Interstate-35E.
Alternating lanes will be closed on Highway 75 north from Highway 121 to Virginia Parkway from 8:30pm to 5:30 a.m. nightly for construction until June 18.
You never know when something big is going to happen (like a cattle-hauler spilling cattle on Interstate-35E right before rush hour), but you can always find out with Traffic & Weather on the 8’s on 1080 AM KRLD.
