UPDATE (KCEN) -- All lanes on I-35 south of Waco are now open.
UPDATE (KCEN) -- The northbound lanes of I-35 are now open after the wreck this morning.
The sound bound lanes near the Sun Valley exit are moving slowly. The inside southbound lane is still closed for environmental cleanup.
A wreck involving 2 18-wheelers is currently being worked about 0.7 miles north of the FM 1695/Moonlight Dr. crossing (exit 325) on the northbound side of I-35, near Baxley Rd. Reports are that one truck's gas tank caught fire, but the fire appears to be out now, with one person still in one of the vehicles. DPS was reported on the way several minutes ago.
No estimate available yet as to clearing time. Recommend alternate routes if possible, as it may take some time to clear the site.
Drive carefully and slow down – rain makes slick road surfaces that require extra care!
Please observe all warning signs, traffic control devices, and police officers in the project area. As a reminder, traffic fines double in construction areas when workers are present, whether or not they are visible.
Efforts to improve the I-35 corridor throughout the state would not be possible without the support of local governments, the Texas Legislature and the U.S. Congress. in addition to the ongoing $1.9 billion dollar expansion of I-35 through TxDOT's Waco District, a number of critical projects are underway in the Dallas/Fort Worth region to improve I-35 connections to I-820 and I-635 thanks to a partnership with the private sector. Meanwhile, TxDOT continues to plan for the long-term future of the I-35 corridor through the MY 35 citizen-driven planning process.
