Work on the demolition is scheduled between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. daily, through the end of next week (if the weather cooperates).

During the deconstruction, some lanes of I-35 will be closed, but all four lanes of the road are supposed to remain open during the day.

The Norman Main St. bridge was first built in 1959. It is being replaced by a new interchange controlled by a single set of traffic lights. This will be the second Single Point Urban Interchange in Oklahoma.
