AUSTIN (KXAN) — All lanes of IH-35 between U.S. 183 and St. Johns Avenue will be closed for a short period of time the morning of Sunday, Aug. 23.

The closure starts at 6:30 a.m. and should end at 6:45 a.m. The closure is needed so Austin Energy can install power lines across the freeway. Police will stop traffic while the power lines are being strung.

In addition to the temporary short-term closure, the outside lanes on the access roads in both directions will be closed between 6:00 a.m. and noon Sunday.

Motorists should allow extra time to travel through this area during the affected hour. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
