GAINESVILLE, TX - Renovation of one of Gainesville's busiest intersections is one step closer to being finished.
According to a TxDot Press Release, I-35 frontage roads between California Street and the Star Street Bridge have been switched from the inside lane to the outside. Meanwhile, exit 497 for north bound I-35 traffic has been closed. Drivers will have to exit at California Street instead. All of these changes are part of the new interchange being built for I-35 and U.S. 82. Construction is scheduled to be complete by summer 2013.
