DALLAS (1080 KRLD) – If your weekend travels normally include Highway 183 in Euless, make plans now to take a different route.

Highway 183 will be closed at Euless Main Street starting at 11:00 p.m. Friday through 6:00 a.m. Monday.

Selma Santin with the Midtown Express Project says crews will be taking down the Main Street Bridge, and it will take all weekend to do so.

“The bridge has to be removed in its entirety so we can start working on the replacement bridge” said Santin. “We anticipate it will take up to 18 months for the replacement bridge.”

While the new bridge is under construction, drivers can take Ector Drive or American Boulevard to get across Hwy 183 and back onto Main Street.
