FDOT ANNOUNCES SOUTHERN BLVD. BRIDGES REPLACEMENT BRIDGES PROJECT UPDATE
A temporary bridge will be built north of the existing bridge to maintain traffic while the replacement bascule bridge is under construction.
Please be advised the eastbound lane of the tide relief bridge on the Southern Boulevard Causeway will have intermittent lane closures from 9:30 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly on the following dates:
Sunday, June 3, to Thursday, June 7
Sunday, June 10, to Thursday, June 14
Flaggers will maintain two-way traffic in the westbound lane – one direction at a time – to allow exploratory drilling for the replacement bridge foundations.
The Southern Boulevard (SR 80) Bridges Replacement Project includes replacing the existing bascule (draw) bridge and tide relief bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway (ICWW) and Lake Worth Lagoon between the Town of Palm Beach and the City of West Palm Beach. The project limits are between Washington Road in West Palm Beach and State Road A1A/South Ocean Boulevard in Palm Beach. New decorative lighting, pedestrian features, traffic signals, signage and drainage are included. A temporary bridge will be built north of the existing bridge to maintain traffic while the replacement bascule bridge is under construction. Active construction began April 3, 2017 and will last until early 2021. The estimated construction cost is $93 million.
