    On Thursday, crews will move equipment onto the north side of the bridge, beginning demolition over the westbound Frontage Road on Friday between 10:30 p.m. and 6 a.m. Saturday.

    Bridge demolition over the main lanes of I-30 will happen Saturday between 10:30 p.m. and 6 a.m. Sunday. All lanes of I-30 will be closed during this time, with traffic detoured onto the frontage roads.

    The project includes a new roadway south of I-30 to north of the railroad tracks. A new I-30 overpass bridge over FM 3549 is expected to be finished in August 2018.
