NORMAN, Okla.- A bridge demolition project in Norman is not expected to impact most residents who travel along I-35 throughout the day.

The Main Street bridge over I-35 is coming down this week.

Some lanes along the highway will be closed during the demolition.

Officials say those lane closures will only be done at night, between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m.

All four lanes along I-35 will be open during the day.

Eventually, this bridge and interchange will be replaced with what’s called a “Single Point Urban Interchange.”

Transportation authorities say they hope the new design will help ease congestion in the area.
