MARBLE FALLS — TxDOT officials have a tentative plan to implode the 77-year-old U.S. 281 bridge early March 17 — a Sunday — about 8 a.m.
Construction officials working on plans to demolish the old U.S. 281 bridge with explosives will meet with city leaders and residents March 5 during the City Council’s regular meeting.
However, TxDOT remains in discussions with other agencies, such as the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, to receive further authorization to use explosives.
TxDOT spokesperson Kelli Reyna said the date and time are dependent on TxDOT receiving all necessary materials and clearances. Reyna said the date and time for implosion should be confirmed a week to 10 days before the proposed date.
