FORT MYER, Fla. – It has been four weeks since the complete closure of the Caloosahatchee River Bridge, with six weeks remaining. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and Lee County are working diligently to keep the public informed about delays and detours. They are also adjusting traffic signal timings to alleviate congestion over the next month and a half.

This full bridge closure is crucial for completing the project one year and four months ahead of schedule. The work accomplished in the past four weeks has advanced the project by 212 days. During this period, crews have demolished and replaced most of the median bridge deck. A new traffic rail rebar has been installed as well as northbound guardrail posts. Most concrete pours are about finished.

The bridge will remain fully closed until August 11, 2024. After this date, the bridge will reopen, with nighttime closures and daytime lane closures as necessary. The entire project is expected to be completed by December 2024 or early 2025, weather permitting.
