Demolition of the old Riverside Drive Bridge is expected to start this week, which means overnight lane closures on Interstate 75 in Bibb County.

The lane closures under the old Riverside Drive Bridge are needed to give demolition crews space to safely remove the old structure, according to a Georgia Department of Transportation news release.

The work is expected to take several weeks.

Starting Monday, a lane of Interstate 75 both northbound and southbound under the old Riverside Drive Bridge will be closed to traffic during daily overnight shifts from 9 p.m.-6 a.m. through the end of May, the release said.

Motorists are urged to drive with caution through or alongside the work zones.
