ICYMI: Demolition of Carolina Bridge delayed until Monday, May 23

Demolition crews will begin tearing down the Carolina Bridge in El Paso’s Lower Valley Monday, May 23, according to the Texas Department of Transportation.

Originally, the state agency said demolition was scheduled to begin Monday, May 16.

The 58-year-old city-owned bridge at North Carolina and Stiles allows motorists to drive over the Franklin Canal and railroad tracks in between Stiles and Alameda.

The new Carolina Bridge will cost taxpayers $8 million. Construction is expected to last 11 months, according to TX-DOT.

When completed, the new bridge will have one lane in each direction; a striped median for left lane turns; and sidewalks in each direction.
