December 2008 Sanibel Causeway counts reach four-year high

By Staff | Feb 6, 2009

On Friday, the City of Sanibel released the 2008 end of the year counts for total vehicles counts across the Sanibel Causeway.

Total vehicles crossing the Sanibel Causeway in December 2008 (244,711) exceeded December 2007 (241,586) by 1.3 percent. December 2008 experienced the highest vehicles counts for any post-Hurricane Charley December.

For the year ending 2008, a total 2.9 million vehicles crossed the Causeway. Even though lower than the total vehicle counts experienced in the late 1980s and throughout the 1990s, the year end total also exceeded all year-end totals since 2005.

A monthly summary of the total vehicles through the Sanibel Causeway is available on the City’s Web site at www.mysanibel.com.
