Demolition of the old William D. Tate Bridge should begin Thursday night, according to officials with NorthGate Constructors.
Removal of the bridge was supposed to start Wednesday night. There will be full highway closures on east and westbound Texas 114 under William D. Tate Avenue from Thursday at 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Friday. Then, Texas 114 will be closed from 8 p.m. on Friday through 6 p.m. Monday, according to the DFW Connector website. Drivers will be detoured onto frontage roads.
Southbound traffic on the new William D. Tate Bridge will be reduced to one lane but all lanes going northbound should remain open.
The project is part of the $1.02-billion highway widening project.
