FDOT News Release -- The Southern Boulevard (SR 80) Bridge and Causeway will have lane closures from 9 p.m. Sunday, June 11, to 6 a.m. Monday, June 12, with closures alternating between the eastbound and westbound lanes.

Flag crews will maintain two-way traffic in one lane as a barrier wall is installed and a portion of the causeway is restriped.

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 late 2020. The estimated construction cost is $93 million.
