TxDOT will close I-35 inner lanes to inspect bridge damaged in deadly wreck

The Texas Department of Transportation will close the I-35 inner fast lanes near the South Valley Mills Drive overpass in Waco sometime after 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Crews will inspect the bridge that was damaged in Tuesday's fiery six-vehicle crash that left three people dead.

TxDOT Spokesperson Jodi Wheatley said the inside lane would be closed in both directions to make room for a bucket truck-- leaving two outside lanes available in both directions. Drivers should plan for delays.

"This will be to do a thorough inspection of the bridge that was damaged yesterday," Waco Police Sgt. Patrick Swanton wrote on Facebook. "Please give consideration to those workers and help us keep them safe."
