All I-35 lanes open

SH 39 has also reopened all lanes


All lanes of southbound and northbound I-35 are now open over SH 39, about 1 mile north of SH 74 (Exit 91) in Purcell.

ODOT officials announced Monday the north and southbound shoulders are now open as well over SH 39.

With the completion of repairs to the bridge over SH 39 all lanes of that state highway are now open.

The I-35 bridge was damaged January 12 by a piece of large equipment driving on SH 39 underneath the bridge. ODOT crews responded to the area immediately and narrowed I-35 to reduce stress on the damaged bridge beams.

After inspections and meeting with contractors on site ODOT declared an emergency and hired Flame On Inc., a contractor that specializes in bridge beam repair.

They completed the repair work on Sunday.
