WACO, Texas — The City of Waco released video of the demolition of the University Parks bridge along Interstate 35 on Thursday.
The demolition is part of the current I-35 reconstruction project by the Texas Department of Transportation that began in April 2019. Its goal is to remove overpasses on I-35 in Waco to increase capacity.
On Tuesday, the spokesperson for TxDOT told 6 News they are at the halfway point of the project.
With Thursday's demolition, the City of Waco said roadway and pedestrian paths will be closed for up to three days as teams work to remove the debris.
The city also asked drivers to drive safely in the area.
