Chisholm Trail construction to prompt I-20 area closures

A. Lee Graham

Reporter

Interstate 20 between Bryant Irvin Road and Hulen Street will close intermittently overnight from 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. from Sept. 19 through spring 2014 to accommodate Chisholm Trail Parkway construction.

Signs will be posted to direct motorists around the closures, with specific closure and detour information to be announced before each overnight closure.

Also, beginning Sept. 23, the eastbound right lane of I-20 approaching the exit to Hulen Street and the exit itself will close for several weeks. Motorists will be directed to exit Bryant Irvin Road and take the frontage road to Hulen Street.

Chisholm Trail Parkway is the planned 27.6-mile toll road that will extend from just west of downtown Fort Worth to U.S. 67 in Cleburne. The entire corridor is expected to open for traffic in spring 2014.
