Intermittent lane closures on IH-35 south of Thousand Oaks and north of Whirlwind Drive will support TxDOT’s elevated lane and bridge projects

March 31, 2023 (SAN ANTONIO) – CPS Energy is working with TxDOT to support their lane and bridge improvements in the northeast area of San Antonio along IH-35, south of Thousand Oaks and north of Whirlwind Drive.

The IH-35 Project involves the replacement of four transmission structures that will require two Sunday lane closures. The work will take place on Sunday, April 2 from the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Sunday, April 16 from the hours of 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. CPS Energy contractor crews will be working on both sides of the highway and access roads. Traffic will be directed during required intermittent lane closures.

Drivers are asked to find alternative routes and avoid the areas, if possible. CPS Energy reminds drivers to Move Over or Slow Down, per State law, for crew and driver safety.
