I-35E traffic detours for North Texas Blvd. map

In late April, the 35Express project on Interstate 35E demolished the North Texas Boulevard bridge to make way for a new bridge. During the bridge closure, traffic wishing to access North Texas Boulevard will use the following detours

  • Southbound I-35E traffic, for example those coming from Fort Worth who take the I-35E exit from I-35W, should continue to the Fort Worth Drive exit and head north (left) onto Fort Worth Drive. The campus will be on the west, accessible by turning left onto the one-way Oak Street and then heading south (left) on Welch, Avenue C or North Texas Boulevard. The campus is also accessible by turning west (left) on Eagle Drive and heading north (right) on Welch or Avenue C. However, starting in late May, Eagle Drive will be resurfaced and various lanes will be closed.
  • Northbound I-35E traffic, for example those coming from Dallas, should take the Fort Worth Drive exit and head north (right) onto Fort Worth Drive. The campus will be on the west, accessible by turning left onto the one-way Oak Street and then heading south (left) on Welch, Avenue C or North Texas Boulevard. The campus is also accessible by turning west (left) on Eagle Drive and heading north (right) on Welch or Avenue C. However, starting in late May, Eagle Drive will be resurfaced and various lanes will be closed.
  • Southbound I-35 traffic, for example those coming from Sanger/Gainesville/Oklahoma, should take the Oak Street exit and turn east (left) onto Oak Street. At Bonnie Brae, you may turn south (right) to head to Apogee Stadium, or continue straight on the one-way Hickory Street to access campus by turning south (right) onto North Texas Boulevard, Avenue C or Welch.
