The next phase of Indian River bridge construction is set to begin. Motorists will see some delays.
Beginning this week and in the coming weeks, the public can expect to see intermittent shoulder and lane closures. At times, traffic may be limited to one lane open in each direction on both the SR-1 northbound and southbound lanes in the area of the bridge. These lane closures are required to allow the contractor access to the roadway to construct temporary crossovers. These lane closures will be removed at the end of each day, allowing for all lanes to be open for motorists during evening and overnight hours. Phase I will be ending mid-May, as Phase II begins. The traffic configuration noted for Phase II requires one lane of traffic over the existing bridge utilizing the SR 1 northbound lanes only.
