SWING BRIDGE OPENThe final paving on the north side of the new bridge of the Boca Grande Causeway will be happening Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday this week.
There will be one lane traffic and at various times stopped traffic during the next few days.
They are expecting the longest delays on Friday. After around 8:30 am on Friday, all on island traffic will be restricted to on toll lane and this configuration will last throughout the day.
As the paving company approaches the toll booth, off-island traffic will be diverted through the third lane (old self-scan) to exit the island.
Traffic patterns will change during each phase of the project over the next few days so travelers need to have patience and please, SLOW DOWN!
