Lee County, FL – The Lee County Sheriff’s Office revealed on Saturday that beginning this weekend there will be significant nighttime closures on the Caloosahatchee River Bridge. 

According to the Florida Department of Transportation, this measure is essential for pedestrian enhancements along U.S. 41, spanning from First Street to North Key Drive. For the safety of both motorists and construction teams, the bridge will be inaccessible from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m., beginning Sunday, April 7, through Thursday, April 11, 2024. These closures are crucial for facilitating bridge work related to the pedestrian improvements.

Starting Monday, April 8, Phase I of the construction plan will commence, resulting in a reduction to one lane in both northbound and southbound directions. This phase is aimed at ensuring the completion of initial construction activities by December 2024. To assist motorists during this period, electronic message boards will provide information on lane closures and suggest alternate routes.
