Busy Bridge in Tyler Closing for Repairs

If you take the Beckham Street Bridge in Tyler, you're going to have to find another route for a little while.

The bridge, which is located between Gentry and Front streets, will be closed starting Wednesday.

The Texas department of Transportation says they'll be doing repairs there for about three weeks. So, the busy Beckham Bridge will remain shut down until the construction is complete.

There will be a detour route from Gentry Parkway to Glenwood Boulevard to Highway 31 back to Highway 271 or Beckham Street.

East Texans familiar with Tyler are asked to find other alternate routes.
