Work Will Soon Start On A New Railroad Overpass

Ground will soon be broken on a new railroad overpass at U.S. 81 in Bowie.

The Texas Department of Transportation has already set up traffic detours along Wise Street leading up to the bridge.

Bowie's new overpass will be redesigned with four lanes going under it.

Plans calls for the new bridge to be completed by next August and traffic back to normal by the end of 2011.

Traffic will be detoured to State Highway 59.
