Next Phase of I-240/I-35 Exchange Construction Set to BeginJun 19, 2017
If you use I-240 on a regular basis you’ll want to prepare yourself for the closing of Shields Boulevard tonight. Crews will also narrow lanes on I-240 and the eastbound service road. The closing is part of an ongoing project to completely reconstruct the I-35/I-240 Crossroads interchange.
Here’s a look at the changes you can expect:
- Eastbound I-240 will be narrowed to one lane between Santa Fe Ave. (mm 3A) and I-35 (mm 4A) from 7 p.m. Monday to 6 a.m. Tuesday and again from 7 p.m. Tuesday to 6 a.m. Wednesday.
- The eastbound I-240 on-ramp from Shields Blvd. will permanently close at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Drivers should use the on-ramp at Santa Fe Ave.
- Eastbound I-240 will remain narrowed to two lanes between Santa Fe Ave. and I-35 from 6 a.m. Wednesday until further notice.
- The eastbound I-240 Service Rd. (S.E. 74th St.) will be narrowed to one lane between Shields Blvd. and S.E. 82nd St. from 7 p.m. Tuesday until further notice.
