Construction on Lakeway Drive Bridge in Georgetown is still in early stages, but Texas Department of Transportation spokesman John Hurt said drivers can expect to see major changes this spring.
The construction project will replace the bridge that crosses over I-35 at Lakeway Drive and N.E. Inner Loop to the south of the current bridge. The new bridge will require the realignment of Lakeway Drive on the west side of I-35 and the reconstruction of the road up to Airport Road. The northbound I-35 exit ramp for Lakeway Drive will also be realigned.
This spring the current bridge is expected to be removed, which could cause overnight lane closures for the main lanes of I-35, Hurt said.
The new bridge will have six lanes, including a left-turn lane in each direction. The lanes will taper down to the existing two-lane roadways on either side of the bridge.
The project is expected to be complete in October 2013.
