TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - A Tuscaloosa bridge is coming down after nearly seven decades as part of the original “Gateway to the University of Alabama.”

The Tuscaloosa News reports (https://bit.ly/1y5bQuu ) the historic viaduct bridge on University Boulevard leading into Tuscaloosa’s Alberta City neighborhood was built in the 1940s after World War II. Demolition on the old bridge is scheduled to begin Monday to make room for a new one.

Tuscaloosa City Councilman Kip Tyner says the entire project is expected to take about eight months, with construction of the new bridge scheduled to wrap up in August.

During the demolition and construction periods, Tuscaloosa residents can use two alternate routes to reach the Alberta City neighborhood.
