  • Repaving and restriping the roadway


The Cow Key Bridge project continues the rehabilitation efforts on the inbound bridge. Traffic is shifted to the outbound bridge while work is underway. The shift provides three lanes of traffic at all times. The speed limit is reduced to 25 miles per hour (mph) through the construction zone.

  • Weekdays
    • 4 a.m. to 2 p.m. – Two inbound lanes and one outbound lane
    • 2 p.m. to 4 a.m. – One inbound lane and two outbound lanes
  • Saturdays
    • Two inbound lanes and one outbound lane
  • Sundays
    • One inbound lane and two outbound lanes

The outbound US 1 left turn lane onto College Road South is prohibited. Motorist are detoured to College Road North. To minimize congestions, a temporary traffic signal was installed on College Road North and it is fully operational. 

The inbound bridge sidewalk and College Road South crosswalk are closed to pedestrian and cyclist. Pedestrian and cyclists can use the crosswalks on Roosevelt Boulevard and Cross Street. The outbound bridge sidewalk is open. Please use caution and follow the posted signage in and around the project limits.
