Causeway bridge inspections start July 12
The follow-up inspection of the beams on the three Sanibel Bridges by Lee County DOT contractor T.Y. Lin International is scheduled to begin on July 12.
The purpose of this inspection is to determine if there has been any increase in crack lengths or widths in any of the bridge beams since the last inspection and whether the cracking has stabilized so Lee County can move forward with repairs.
Inspections are to be done weekdays between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and currently is expected to be completed by July 31, weather permitting. The work will be done from the shoulders of the bridges and should be accomplished without lane closures, although there may be very short traffic slowdowns during the daily set up and take down of traffic control devices.
