Almost everyone I know uses the I-35 corridor to get from one end of the city to the other in their daily travels.  I know, even if I warn you (and I am included), you will forget and travel near the closure area.  But, probably only once!!  For those of you with a better memory than I, here are the days and lanes you should shy away from next Tuesday and Wednesday.
