Whatever You Do, Don't Take I-30 Through Oak Cliff Friday Night

Lest you consider, not that you would, heading to Arlington for any pre-Valentine's Day fun via I-30, Unfair Park has a few words of advice: Don't. Unless you don't care if you actually make it back to Dallas.

TxDOT will be closing the two left lanes of the eastbound side of the freeway between Westmoreland Road to Loop 12 in Oak Cliff so the agency can "change the traffic pattern" of that stretch of Tom Landry Freeway.

"Backups are expected and motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes," TxDOT says.

The lanes will reopen Saturday morning at 10. When they do, "traffic will switch to a new configuration," which almost sounds fun.
