MIDLAND, Texas (KOSA) - According to the Texas Department of Transportation, phased demolition of the Midkiff Bridge begins May 31.
TxDOT says that the new bridge will see a decrease in bridge strikes on I-20 by trucks and provides accessible pedestrian walkways.
Because of the Midkiff closure, drivers will need to plan for alternate routes and provide extra time for travel.
TxDOT includes that, the existing bridge is closed, and both Midkiff and Cotton Flat will be unavailable for travel across I-20.
Midkiff Road is expected to reopen in early spring of 2024. Cotton Flat Road will reopen shortly after in spring 2024.
