Overnight demolition work on the Fish Hatchery bridge over the Beltline has been delayed a week, thanks to bad weather.

The Madison Engineering Department's road construction update said work at the interchange will be from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. starting Monday night, Feb. 25, through early Friday, March 1.

Beltline lanes will be shut down at the interchange as the bridge deck is demolished, with the lane shutdowns starting on the north side (far right westbound lane) and going to the south side (far right eastbound lane).

Ramps at the interchange also will be shut down on various nights, so drivers are advised to watch for traffic signs when driving through the area.

After the bridge demolition work is done, the two-way traffic using the northbound half of the bridge will be switched over to the southbound side, so the northbound lanes can be rebuilt.

The entire project, which includes reconfiguring the ramps on the north side of the bridge heading to and from the Beltline, should be finished in September.
