The Mid-Bay Bridge will be closed to all traffic from 11:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 14, and Friday, May 15.

The closure is to allow workers to remove and replace steel tendons on the bridge.

While the bridge will be closed to traffic, emergency service vehicles will still be able to use the bridge for urgent emergency services.

S.R. 20, S.R. 85, and U.S. 98 can be used as alternative routes.

Florida Department of Transportation Officials say bridge closures will take place periodically through May.

There will be message boards at each end of the bridge to alert drivers.
