Mid-Bay Bridge Closure rescheduled
Work on the Mid-Bay Bridge originally scheduled for tonight, April 27 will take place from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. Tuesday, April 28. The bridge will be closed to all traffic during this time as workers remove and replace steel tendons. Emergency service vehicles will be able to utilize the bridge during the temporary closures. Alternative routes are State Road (S.R.) 20, S.R. 85, and U.S. 98. Bridge closures will take place periodically through the months of April and May. Variable message boards at each end of the bridge will alert drivers about restrictions.
The Mid-Bay Bridge is currently restricted to only two-axle vehicles and single axle trailers. This load restriction is a cautionary measure intended to minimize the stresses on the bridge during maintenance activities. All planned construction activities are weather dependent and may be rescheduled in the event of inclement weather.
