FDOT News Release -- The westbound lane of Southern Boulevard Bridge will be closed from 9:30 p.m. to 6 a.m. nightly on the following dates:
• Monday, Nov. 27, to Thursday, Nov. 30
• Sunday, Dec 3., to Thursday, Dec. 7
• Sunday, Dec 10, to Thursday, Dec. 14
• Sunday, Dec. 17, to Thursday, Dec. 21
Flaggers will maintain two-way traffic in the eastbound lane – one direction at a time – to allow crews to perform exploratory drilling for the replacement bridge foundations.
The Southern Boulevard (SR 80) Bridges Replacement Project includes replacing the existing bascule (draw) bridge and tide relief bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway (ICWW) and Lake Worth Lagoon between the Town of Palm Beach and the City of West Palm Beach. The project limits are between Washington Road in West Palm Beach and State Road A1A/South Ocean Boulevard in Palm Beach. New decorative lighting, pedestrian features, traffic signals, signage and drainage are included. A temporary bridge will be built north of the existing bridge to maintain traffic while the replacement bascule bridge is under construction. Active construction began April 3, 2017, and will last until early 2021. The estimated construction cost is $93 million.
