Motorists in northwest Alabama might have to find a new way to get around Florence for a few days.

The Tennessee Valley Authority says it's closing the Alabama 133 bridge across Wilson Dam for maintenance work starting Monday morning.

The bridge will be closed until Friday afternoon, or whenever the work is completed.

TVA says closing the bridge allows for a crane to be set up for work on the spillway gate at Wilson Dam.
