AUSTIN ( -- Ongoing construction along Interstate 35 at Stassney Lane will prompt road closures during the overnight hours this week.

TxDOT officials say the northbound mainlanes of Interstate 35 will close while crews work to hang beams for the new Stassney Lane overpass. The northbound lanes will close Monday and Tuesday nights from 11 p.m. until 5 a.m.; crews will shift to the southbound lanes Wednesday and Thursday nights.

Interstate traffic will be diverted to the frontage roads; traffic on Stassney trying to cross the interstate will be detoured north to Ben White or south to William Cannon.

Officials say the closures are weather permitting. The entire $79 million project, which started in July 2016, is expected to wrap up next summer.
