TxDOT says it will begin with re-striping, reducing travel to one lane westbound at night until Saturday evening.
Monday workers will begin a month long project, installing a concrete barrier. And eventually shifting all eastbound traffic to the westbound lanes
The "big shift" to the westbound bridge is expected to take place in late March. That's when all travelers will be forced to use the westbound bridge on two lanes in each direction. Then a new eastbound bridge can be built.
The $59 million project is expected to be finished by 2015.
