Beginning Friday evening at 9 p.m., Nov. 16, the roadway approaches and the Matlacha Bridge will be reduced to one lane of traffic through the weekend until 6 a.m. Monday morning in order to construct the new roadway approaches and switch traffic onto the new bridge.
The contractor will work on the roadway 24/7 (weather permitting) in order
to complete the roadway construction over the weekend period to shift traffic onto the new bridge as quickly as possible.
Motorists should expect delays.
Flagmen will be on site to direct traffic. They will alternate the traffic intervals to minimize delay and will give priority to emergency vehicles.
Motorists are urged to drive with care be aware of workers and equipment on the roadway.
