Fargo, ND (WDAY TV)-- If your work commute takes you under the walking bring along I-94, you've probably noticed a huge tarp blocking some of the lanes.

It is keeping toxic particles from getting into the air.

Right now crews are working to remove the blue paint covering the bridge, the paint is lead-based.

The project will be in 3 phases. Each with the tarp covering a different part of the bridge and extending to the road.

Justin OSS- Project Engineer: "There's a lot of health risks associated without having that containment system up there. The workers have containment suits on, ventilators, things like that, to protect them as well."

Engineers say it's important to slow down and watch for workers.
