BIG SPRING - Eastbound traffic at the bridge on Interstate 20 and FM 700 in Big Spring will be closed for a while.

That's so the Texas Department of Transportation can repair damage done to the bridge back in October by an 18-wheeler that was carrying a high load.

TXDOT officials say that drivers should be ready to make short-term detours every now and then.

You should also watch out for reduced lanes and road closures in that area while bridge beams are being replaced.

The repairs should be done by early March.
