MISSION—Demolition of the overpass on Inspiration Road and U.S. 83 begins this week, according to an update from TxDOT at the Mission Redevelopment Authority meeting on Tuesday.
Judith Garza-Bozquez with the Texas Department of Transportation said a barrier has already been placed within the project limits, shifting main lane traffic to the outer lanes in preparation for the demolition.
“Currently, we have a contractor on schedule to begin bridge demolition on March 27,” Garza-Bozquez said. “It should take approximately three weeks. Of course that is subject to change.”
Palm trees in the vicinity of the overpass have been removed and planted on Conway Avenue and the Sharyland Golf Course. Garza-Bozquez said TxDOT is encouraging the city to notify citizens about the construction.
