This daytime photo of work being done along the Casey Arborway on May 13, 2015, has been altered to suggest a nighttime scene.

Night work began on the massive Casey Arborway project at 8 p.m. Sunday. It is expected to run at least a week.

Here’s what the Department of Transportation had to say about the change:

Beginning Sunday night June 14th, 8 p.m. to 6 a.m., nighttime demolition operations will begin on the Casey Overpass between Washington Street and South Street. As has been stated at public information meetings, nighttime work will take place on those sections of the Overpass which are above traffic which would need to be detoured away from the work zone for safety reasons.

State officials say there will always be two weeks’ notice for residents before any night work begins. The notification about Sunday’s night work was sent on Friday, May 29.
