Weather Delays I-35 Ramp Closures

Crews from Herzog Contracting Corp., working with the Missouri Department of Transportation, had planned to close the northbound entrance and exit ramps at Route BB (Exit 52) Thursday as part of the paving project on the northbound lanes of Interstate 35 in the Cameron area.

Weather delays have pushed those closures back to today, July 31, and Saturday, August 1.

The ramps will close between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. as crews resurfacing the northbound lanes of I-35 reach Exit 52.

Due to the nature of the work, progress along the lanes for through traffic cannot be scheduled, so the exact time the ramps will close is unknown.

Once closed, the ramps will remain inaccessible for approximately 2-3 hours.

During the closure, motorists must use another route to access Route BB from I-35 or to access I-35 from Route BB.

Through traffic on I-35 will continue to be affected by the asphalt paving.

Traffic on northbound I-35 is narrowed to one lane between Shoal Creek and the DeKalb County line.

A 12-foot width restriction is in place.

Drivers are urged to stay alert and pay attention to all roadway signing and barricades.

All work is weather-permitting.

With the recent weather pattern, schedules are subject to change.
