The Casey Overpass, despite the fact it is scheduled to be torn down, is getting repaved.
Work began Wednesday and Thursday on the project, causing closure of the bridge to traffic. Work is scheduled to begin Sunday night at 9 p.m. and finish Monday morning at 5 a.m.
The future of the bridge is a hot topic in JP. After it is torn down, the state will either rebuild a new, lower bridge or put all the traffic at ground level.
