BRUCEVILLE-EDDY, TX (KXXV) -

Starting at 9 a.m., TxDOT will be preparing FM 107 / TX 7 bridge over I-35 for demolition Wednesday night.

The demolition, at exit 315 in Bruceville-Eddy, will take place on Wednesday night at 7 p.m. through 7 a.m. Thursday morning.

During this time, both I-35 northbound and southbound main lanes will be closed. Drivers will be diverted onto the frontage roads at exit 315 and allowed to reenter I-35 at the first available on-ramp.

Exit 318 will also be closed during this time for southbound drivers.

While the bridge is demolished and a new bridge is being built, travelers on FM 107 / TX 7 will have to take new detour routes. Eastbound drivers will detour on the southbound frontage road to Old Blevins Road, cross under I-35 and turn back north towards FM 107 / TX 7. Westbound drivers will be directed to the northbound frontage road to N. Eddy Road, cross under I-35 and head south on frontage road back to FM 107 / TX 7.

The bridge is expected to be closed until next summer in 2018, TxDOT says

TxDOT also warns, if you are driving between Salado and Belton during the day on Wednesday, you might run into slower traffic between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. while the new pavement is inspected on both the northbound and southbound lanes.
