DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - Starting Saturday night, all lanes of northbound and southbound I-35E will be closed at 8th street, south of downtown. 

According to TXDOT officials, after the roadway is closed Saturday night, work will continue throughout the day on Sunday and should be wrapped up by 6:00 a.m. Monday. 

Dianne Tordillo with the Southern Gateway Project, said the project aims to alleviate traffic congestion on major higways south of downtown Dallas. 

Tordillo says this weekend's work is apart of an 11-mile project that started earlier this year and will expand I-35E from four to five lanes in all directions.
