The Woodall Rodgers Extension project on IH-35E in Dallas recently required multi-lane, and intermittent, full-road closures on I-35E near downtown to allow crews to set and weld bridge beams.

The $47.5-million project to extend Woodall Rodgers Freeway from I-35E to Beckley Avenue at Singleton Boulevard will also feature the $69.7-million Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge over the Trinity River. The bridge and the remainder of the Woodall Rodgers extension are scheduled to open in mid-2011.
