Electrical work closes I-35 at Slaughter Lane Sunday morning


AUSTIN (KXAN) — Drivers on Interstate 35 in south Austin will face some road closures early Sunday morning.

Both directions of I-35 between Slaughter Lane and Onion Creek Parkway will be closed from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m. for electrical work.

TxDOT crews will be directing traffic in both directions as they stretch new electrical lines across the interstate. The short-term closures during the affected hours are expected to last 10-15 minutes in duration each, with police stopping traffic as needed.

Road signs have been placed along the area to alert drivers of the closure. Drivers should allow extra time to travel through I-35 during the closure.

TxDOT is asking the public to remain patient and aware when passing through the construction zone.
