BERMUDA RUN, N.C. (AP) — There's more delays and detours in store for a part of Interstate 40 in North Carolina.

The N.C. Department of Transportation says contractors will demolish a pedestrian bridge that crosses I-40 just west of the Yadkin River near Bermuda Run beginning Monday.

Work on the Berts Way bridge is taking place as part of ongoing construction to replace the I-40 bridges over the Yadkin River. It also is meant to widen and improve I-40 in the area

The contractor will close the left lane of eastbound I-40 for set-up work around 6 p.m. Monday. The contractor then will close the left lane of westbound I-40 for set-up work around 7 p.m. Thursday.

Eastbound and westbound traffic will use N.C. 801, U.S. 158, and Harper Road in opposite directions as detours.
