Anyone know whatís going on there? I wasnít able to take any pictures, maybe I can try tomorrow when I pass thru again.

I know the connector segment (west of I-35) is still a few years off, so it canít be related to that:

Passed by this area again yesterday evening. A lot of construction equipment in this same spot. I canít tell if they are building something there or using the area to store for a project nearby (I-35?).

Anybody else seen this and know whatís going on here?

The activity is almost surely a staging area for the imminent work on I-35 from SH 45 to US 290. Bids were opened for the $548 million project in May 2022. As usual, it takes a very long time for projects to actually start.
