Spur 280 Closure Schedule - Beginning September 19, 2018

September 13,2018

Spur 280 closures are taking place to ensure the safety of both drivers and the construction crews during the construction of a railroad bridge and construction activity on the WB Spur 280 Bridge. 

Weather permitting, the closure schedule is as follows:

Spur 280 Westbound (WB)

Wednesday, September 19 at 9 AM -  Tuesday, October 9 at 5 AM

Spur 280 Eastbound (EB)

Friday, September 21 at 8 PM - Monday, September 24 at 5 AM

Traffic will be detoured:

Spur 280 WB (into Downtown Fort Worth):

  • I-30 to the Lancaster or Henderson exits
  • I-35 to the Belknap exit (Belknap will be closed overnight due to I-35 construction, requiring motorists to use I-30 during the overnight hours)

Spur 280 EB (out of Downtown Fort Worth):

  • I-30 enter from either Lancaster or Henderson
  • I-35 enter from Weatherford

The Spur 280 road closures are part of the TEXRail project, the new 27-mile commuter rail line that will extend from Downtown Fort Worth, across northeast Tarrant County, through North Richland Hills and Grapevine, and into Dallas Fort Worth International Airport's Terminal B. The line is scheduled to begin service in January 2019.
