MADISON, AL (WAFF) -

A major road project kicks off in a week when crews will shut down part of Wall Triana to replace a bridge near Eastview Drive.

The work is expected to start on Thursday. The bridge was built nearly 80 years ago. It's narrow and can only hold about a third of the weight as a modern bridge. The project is part of Alabama's A-Trip funding which splits the cost between the state and local governments.

"This area in here will be open to local traffic only," said Madison Mayor Troy Trulock. "We may not physically remove the bridge for probably six weeks or so in case we have emergency crews that need to get through, but for the through traffic, starting next Thursday, they'll not be able to travel down Wall Triana for this block."

Detour signs will be posted, taking drivers down Hughes and to Brown's Ferry.
