Third-shift commuters and other late-night denizens of the Durham Freeway, take note: a demolition project will shut down the freeway in both directions at night between 11 p.m. and 5:30 a.m.
It starts Tuesday, May 26 (weather permitting), and the demolition of the abandoned Alston Avenue pedestrian bridge will take about two weeks..
Click this map for the detour route. It uses the Alston and Briggs avenue exits, connected by Pettigrew.
Here are details about Durham's plan to replace the rusted, abandoned, ugly old bridge with a pretty new one that will glow blue at night.
And here's the city announcement about construction and traffic plans.
