U.S. 11 Bridge will reopen Thursday

UPDATE: The U.S. 11 Bridge is now open.


The U.S. 11 Bridge will reopen to vehicular traffic on Thursday, March 31, 2022 by 3:00 p.m.

In 2018, crews began the $28.36 million dollar project to make concrete and structural repairs, replace the grid deck, paint, install a new fender system, and to rehabilitate the electrical and mechanical systems on the two drawbridges.

Although the bridge is opening for vehicular traffic, the contractor will continue working to complete several punch list items. Should this work require the contractor to close a lane on the bridge, a flagging operation will be in place to allow the bridge to remain open to traffic. In order to perform tests and make final adjustments to the bridge’s mechanical equipment, there will be several nighttime closures of the bridge in April. When possible, any work requiring a full closure of the bridge will take place during nighttime hours.

Marine traffic will still have width restrictions when passing through the bridge until the testing and adjustments are completed.
