Damn this Traffic Jam

This just in from the North Texas Tollway Authority: The tollway entrance and exit ramps to and from Stemmons Freeway will be closed this weekend. Why? The Texas Department of Transportation's Bridge Division will be inspecting the Dallas North Tollway's ramp bridges, thus prompting the closing of the ramps on and off throughout the weekend. Here's the schedule:

On Saturday, Aug. 11, the northbound entrance ramp from I-35 will be closed from 6:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Drivers can enter the Tollway at Wycliff Ave.

On Sunday, Aug. 12, the southbound exit to I-35 from the Tollway will be closed from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Drivers can exit at Wycliff Ave. or Harry Hines Blvd.

Or, stay home. --Robert Wilonsky
