DALLAS -- Planning on going out on the town Friday night? Well, you might want to consider making it a Netflix kind of night. That's right, get ready for "Traffic Apocalypse: Part 2."

Around 10 p.m. Friday night until 10 a.m. Saturday morning, all southbound lanes at I-35 and I-30 will be closed. That includes the southbound I-35E exit to eastbound I-30, which is a huge traffic stop.

The closure is also going to cause a ruckus on Woodall Rodgers Freeway and Interstate 345.

Translation -- we’re talking a lot of traffic.

We barely survived "Apocalypse Part 1" when they shut down the Dallas North Tollway for two weekends in a row to demolish and rebuild the Tennyson Bridge.

Well, they're at it again. The Horseshoe Project, which should be finished in the summer of 2017, is supposed to improve driving to downtown Dallas.

"It’s a great thing that it's going to be improving businesses later on you know, more people coming through and making easier access to everything,” says Raul Serrano.

The $798 million plan is set to add new bridges, pavement and roadways all along I-30 and I-35E.

Plus, the most important thing -- more lanes!

The star of the new construction project is the Margaret McDermott Bridge, a steel suspended arch over the Trinity River.

Bottomline, don't say we didn't warn you! Good luck and may the traffic odds be ever in your favor.
