Welcome
 

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has begun a bridge rehabilitation and safety project along SR A1A/MacArthur Causeway East Bridge (bridge number 870077) from Terminal Island to Alton Road

WORK TO BE PERFORMED

  • Repairing concrete elements under the bridge such as beams, columns, painting bridge steel spans and repairing the fender system and electrical components to the navigational bridge lighting
  • Repairing elements on top of the bridge such as concrete deck replacement

LANE CLOSURE AND DETOUR INFORMATION
To do this work safely, it will be necessary to close travel lanes and establish detours at times. One continuous lane closure will occur in the westbound lanes followed by the eastbound lanes for approximately nine months.

Two westbound lanes from Terminal Island to Alton Road on the MacArthur Causeway were closed on July 31, 2018, to address both full depth and partial depth concrete deck repairs, on the easternmost section of the bridge. The contractor will be performing these repairs ahead of schedule to avoid continuous double lane closures later, during the upcoming tourist season.

Two of the three westbound lanes are scheduled to be reopened by mid-September 2018. One westbound lane will remain continuously closed for approximately four more months. The contractor anticipates to reopen all westbound lanes by December 2018.

Daytime and nighttime work will be performed both on top and underneath the bridge. At least one eastbound and one westbound travel lane will remain open at all times.

Lane closure and project information will be posted weekly on the department’s website.
