A I-30 left-lane closure that has been irritating motorists for more than a month on a busy mile of I-30 in west Fort Worth will remain in place for about two more weeks, a Texas Department of Transportation official said Tuesday.
The left lanes of I-30 in both directions from Montgomery Street to Forest Park Boulevard have been closed since early August. That's when a contractor was brought aboard to install a new sign bridge.
But not long after the job began, workers were surprised to find a storm sewer where they had hoped to anchor the bridge, transportation department spokesman Val Lopez said. Construction grinded to a halt while engineers went back to the blueprints.
"We had to redesign the sign bridge that's going to support these signs,"Lopez said, "and we were able to get that approved, so they should be opening up if not next week the following week."
