I-40 and Bell to Close Both Directions Over Weekend

The Randall County Sheriff's Office issued a warning today to motorists alerting drivers to closures at Bell.

According to the Sheriff's Office, the Texas Department of Transportation will close I-40 in both directions at bell to accommodate for the demolition of the Bell Street bridge. Traffic will be directed onto the frontage roads in both directions and will re-enter I-40 somewhere past the bridge.

The transition will begin at 7pm and full closure of the interstate is expected at 9pm.

I-40 will reopen on Monday morning.
