GAINESVILLE, TX -- A half a century old bridge in Gainesville is about to be torn down.

TXDOT says demolition on the Star Street Bridge that crosses I-35, just south of Highway 82, begins at 7:00 Tuesday night.

All I-35 traffic will be re-routed onto the frontage roads, and the Highway 82 overpass will be shut down as well. Roadways should re-open at 6:00 Wednesday morning, but may be shut down again Wednesday night. They urge local residents to avoid the area.

Officials say the bridge was too old and costly to maintain.
