Interstate 580 will be closed in the early morning hours at the Fallon Road interchange in Dublin beginning Wednesday and extending through Friday for bridge construction work, the city of Dublin announced.
Construction crews will be removing an existing barrier rail along the east side of the freeway overcrossing.
Westbound 580 will be closed between midnight and 3 a.m., while eastbound 580 will be closed between 1 and 4 a.m. those days.
Traffic traveling on 580 will be detoured off the freeway at the Fallon Road/El Charro Road off-ramps. At the end of the off-ramps, motorists will be directed across Fallon/El Charro Road and can re-enter the freeway utilizing the existing on ramps from Fallon Road/El Charro Road. Access to Fallon Road and El Charro Road will be maintained. At no time will both eastbound and westbound I-580 be closed simultaneously.
Motorists may experience minor delays exiting and reentering the freeway and may want to consider alternate routes to avoid any construction related delays.
The Fallon interchange is being expanded to accommodate future traffic demand in eastern Dublin. The work includes widening the Fallon overcrossing, re-connecting Fallon to the crossing, reconstructing on- and off-ramps to 580 and installing traffic signals, lighting and landscaping. The project is expected to be complete this fall.
