*ALERT* Howard Frankland Closing Both Directions Beginning At 8pm!

If you plan on using the Howard Frankland Bridge THIS weekend you'll need to make new plans.

The Florida Department of Transportation plans to shut down all I-275 lanes on the Howard Frankland from 8 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 16th through noon on Sunday, Jan. 17th. The closure will be weather permitting

This is just the beginning of a MAJOR construction project involving the Gateway Express Project.

Why do they need to close ALL lanes from 8pm TONIGHT through NOON tomorrow. A spokesperson for the FDOT says the bridge has to shut down so crews can remove the 4th Street North bridge over I-275.

There will be light board reminders all over the bay reminding you of the closure.

The FDOT says to leave at least 30 minutes extra travel time.
