For Bearcat soccer fans traveling to Georgetown this weekend, there are some closures happening in the Temple area that could affect the return trip.
Per the Texas Department of Transportation, I-35 north and southbound will be closed at Central Ave./Adams Ave. from 8 p.m. Saturday, April 21 to noon Sunday, April 22.
Travelers will be directed through the Central Ave. / Adams Ave. intersections by police officers and will re-enter I-35 at the first active on-ramp after passing through the area.
Northbound traffic will detour off I-35 at Exit #300 (57th St / Ave. H / Central Ave.), and re-enter I-35 between Adams Ave. and Nugent Ave.
Southbound traffic will detour off I-35 at Exit #301 (Adams Ave. / Central Ave.), and re-enter I-35 before S. Loop 363.
The contractor plans to demolish the remaining (old) Adams Ave. bridge over I-35, as well as to install items for the new directional signs and message boards.
Alternate routes are strongly encouraged.
