FDOT Issues Update on Roosevelt Bridge Repair

19 Aug FDOT Logo

Tallahassee – The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and its contractor anticipate restoring six lanes of traffic on the Roosevelt Bridge in Stuart by tomorrow, in time for the Thanksgiving holiday, weather permitting. This will allow the intersection at Joan Jefferson

on the south end of the bridge and Wright Boulevard on the north end to operate with six lanes of traffic and turn lanes during peak hours. Additionally, the department will provide more room for vehicles in the southbound left turn lane to Joan Jefferson.

After restoring the intersections to six lanes, the contractor will focus on sealing the deck on the northbound bridge and completing the remainder of the project after Thanksgiving weekend.

Intermittent lane closures will occur while sealing of the northbound bridge deck continues. One sidewalk on the bridges will remain open at all times and signs will be in place to direct people to the open sidewalk.

The overall completion of work is expected to occur in February 2021, weather permitting.
