(KCEN) -- Traffic will be heavy on I-35 for the University of Texas vs Oklahoma University game Friday through Sunday.
TxDOT wants to remind drivers to be extra cautious while driving on I-35.
With the 66 miles of active construction work zones, it is very important to drive the speed limit and be careful of the shortened shoulders. Concrete traffic barriers line both sides of the road and within these areas, the speed limit has been reduced to 60 mph.
In addition to construction zones, TxDOT is replacing the bridge deck on the I-35 overpass at the intersection with US 77 north of Hillsboro (exit 370) with three northbound lanes and two southbound lanes open over the crossing. Southbound lanes of both I-35E and I-35W are reduced to one lane each as they approach the intersection to help control traffic.
Here are some alternate routes to avoid this intersection:

TxDOT also wants to remind drivers to allow extra time to get to your destination, don't text while driving, and make sure to have a designated driver when coming home from the game.
