A busy Bangor bridge is about to get replaced.

Demolition starts next week on the Ohio Street Bridge that goes over I-95.

The bridge is about 60 years old and at the end of its life-span.

"We're putting in some new non-corrosive materials that will hopefully limit the amount of long-term maintenance we'll have to do in the decades moving forward," said DOT Public Information Officer Paul Merrill.

The bridge is expected to be open in September.
