Give your self extra time if you're traveling on I-35 Wednesday night.

The Temple Daily Telegram is reporting that northbound lanes of I-35 from north Temple to Troy will be shut down Wednesday night starting at 11 p.m, reopening at 6 a.m. Thursday.

The shutdown affects northbound traffic between FM 1237 (just past Bottoms East Road) and the I35 entrance ramp north of Main St. in Troy.

Traffic will be diverted onto the frontage road at the FM 1237 exit and back onto the highway in Troy.

The good news is we're only a year away from it all being done. That is, if you believe the web sites. The Temple section is scheduled to be finished in the Summer of 2018, so for those of us who live that long, at least we'll have something to look forward to.
