Concrete pours using the form traveler continue with nine of 24 total sections having been completed. Other bridge building activities continue to progress as scheduled with the anticipated availability to traffic occurring by late 2011.
Currently, the Phase II traffic pattern is in effect. Route 1 northbound and southbound will be in dual single-lane traffic in the existing northbound lanes in the area of the Indian River Inlet Bridge. All median turn lanes in this area are closed. As a result, Turn Point Road and Inlet Road (also known as Marina Road) will no longer be accessible from northbound Route 1. Access to Turn Point Road and Inlet Road will be available via southbound Route 1 only. Access to northbound Route 1 from Inlet Road and Turn Point Road will be via U-turn at 3R’s Road. Access to the south Beach Day Area will continue uninterrupted from the northbound lanes. Detour signs are posted around the work zone to redirect traffic to their desired destinations. The posted speed limit is 35 MPH through the work zone.
