The “Sunshine Bridge will have short-term intermittent closures on Thursday, June 20, between 8 p.m. and 12 a.m.,” according to the DOTD.

During that time period motorists should expect one direction of traffic to be closed for short periods of time. 

DOTD said, “the closures are necessary for DOTD to conduct further inspections of the bridge following a tanker collision on June 16.”

The fender system did its job as the bridge did not suffer any damage. 

DOTD is making sure the bridge is ok by doing these more in-depth inspections.

If you have any questions, call 511 or visit www.511la.org for additional travel information.
