Overnight Closing Of Caloosahatchee Bridge
LABELLE, FL. -- The LaBelle bridge will be closed overnight to traffic. The contractor has planned a nighttime lane closure for Thursday night, September 30 at 9:00 PM (Thursday night) through October 1st at 6:00 AM (Friday morning).
The daytime work planned for the upcoming week involves electrical work and painting on the underside of the bridge only. Therefore, traffic will be minimally impacted for the upcoming week.
The bridge will remain under a single leaf operation and is not expected to affect marine traffic. The bridge rehabilitation project is underway and is estimated for completion by the end of 2010. Crews will be making electrical, mechanical, and structural repairs to the bascule bridge, as well as painting. Coastal Marine Construction is the contractor.
