UPDATE: The work scheduled to close Interstate 20 Sunday night to Monday morning between Longview and Hallsville has been postponed due to expected inclement weather.
The work will be rescheduled as weather permits, according to Texas Department of Transportation Atlanta District spokesman Marcus Sandifer.
ORIGINAL STORY: A section of Interstate 20 from Longview to Hallsville will be closed Sunday evening to Monday morning for demolition work.
The closure is set for 7 p.m. Sunday to 5 a.m. Monday as crews work to demolish the bridge that crosses I-20 at Lansing Switch Road, according to Marcus Sandifer, spokesman for TxDOT’s Atlanta District.
Eastbound traffic will exit at Loop 281 and be detoured down FM 968 to FM 450 to get back on I-20. Westbound traffic will exit at FM 450 and be detoured up to U.S. 80 before heading to Loop 281 and back onto the interstate.
The construction schedule could change due to weather. Anyone with questions should call TxDOT’s Marshall office at (903) 935-2809.
