Drivers can expect a combination of lane closures on northbound I-430 starting at 6:00 Saturday morning, with only one lane to be open for up to 12 hours between Colonel Glenn Road and the Big Rock Interchange.
Delays are to be expected as workers restripe and shift the northbound lanes back to their original and final position. Only the northbound lanes will be moved during this weekend lane shift, according to (AHTD) officials.
Once the northbound lane shift is complete, the two loop ramps that have been closed for a week will re-open, and the detour utilizing Shackleford Road will be removed. This should occur sometime late Saturday afternoon or Saturday evening. There will be two lanes of travel open through the interchange area after the lane shift, and that pattern will remain in place for the rest of this year.
If the weather cooperates, the final traffic pattern shift should occur next Wednesday, August 8, when workers will begin shifting the I-430 southbound lanes back to their original and final position.
Once the southbound lane shift begins, motorists can expect a combination of lane closures with only one lane open for up to 12 hours between Rodney Parham Road and the Big Rock Interchange. The AHTD will update this information early next week.
"The good news is that we will be wrapping up this work before school starts, and that was the goal," said AHTD Director Scott Bennett. "We simply ask for the motorists' patience for just a few more days."
