Northbound exit to FM 3009 to close for three weeks
SCHERTZ -- Sunday night, Jan. 12, crews working for the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) will close the northbound I-35 exit to F.M. 3009 in Schertz to rebuild the exit ramps and finish work on the northbound frontage road.
The entrance ramp from Schertz Parkway will also close. The ramps will be reopened in time for the morning commute Monday, Feb. 3. Traffic headed to F.M. 3009 will use the Schertz Parkway exit and follow the frontage road. Traffic from Schertz Parkway will go through the intersection of F.M. 3009 to reach northbound I-35.
Crews are rebuilding the exit to better align with the new entrance ramp from F.M. 1518. An additional lane will be added to the exit. Work on the north-to-south turnaround should also be completed, opening the lanes of the northbound frontage road closed to accommodate the improvements at the busy intersection.
The closure is tied to a milestone allowing the contractor just three weeks to finish work while rewarding efforts to reopen the ramp early. Project supervisors have indicated they’re targeting the maximum incentives. Cold temperatures could impact some of the work as crews lay asphalt or pour concrete, but with the polar vortex moving out of the area, project supervisors are confident temperatures will remain warm enough to complete the work without delay.
