Construction crews will close several busy streets in Fort Worth to work on projects on two major bridges.

Interstate 35 W southbound will be reduced to one lane near the old Weatherford Street bridge on Monday night starting at 8:30 p.m.

A handful of other streets near the bridge, including the new Weatherford Street bridge and Belknap Street will be closed for the night as well. Non-highway road closures will begin around 6 p.m.

Demolition of the old Weatherford Street bridge will occur during the shutdown.

The project will reduce lanes in an already overcrowded freeway.

The stretch of road to be closed topped a list compiled by the Texas Department of Transportation of the most congested roads in the state released last year.

Fort Worth drivers will also see a big construction detour as Forest Park Boulevard will be closed in both directions starting Monday.

That road is being closed as part of a construction project on another new bridge -- this one situated in the West 7th area.
