On Nov. 26, crews will pour the deck for the new bridge. The bridge will be closed to east and westbound traffic beginning at 8 p.m.
The bridge is being reconstructed as part of the larger ongoing project to make improvements on I-35 from north of Stassney to south of William Cannon Drive. The old Stassney bridge was demolished in August for the project, and construction is anticipated to take about six months to complete, according to TxDOT.
The William Cannon bridge was demolished in sections beginning in March 2018 and rebuilt by late 2018. Other work associated with the project has included the creation of new service road U-turn lanes and ramps as well as the widening of I-35 main lanes in the area.
