TXDOT has announced that the 11th street bridge over I-35 in Waco as well as two exit ramps will be permanently closed as of 7 am Monday.

The closure and future destruction will affect what exit you take in the area. Exit #377B will be closed so you will need to take #337A and stay on the access road for a bit longer in order to take a left.

The 11th street bridge will be demolished at a later date, which will case main lane closures, but for now to get around it drives will need to use the crossings at 17th/18th St to the south, or the crossing at 4th/5th St to the north.

When completed, the demolished bridge will be rebuilt with pedestrian and bicycle access under I-35. As of now make sure you obey traffic signs and give yourself some extra time on the road.

The map below indicates the intersection that will be closed at 11th street.
