Routine bridge inspection slated for Sanibel Causeway

FORT MYERS — Lee County Department of Transportation consultant T.Y. Lin International will perform planned bridge inspections on the three Sanibel Causeway bridges as part of a routine monitoring program established in 2013. Work is anticipated to begin Monday, May 6, and be complete by summer, weather permitting.

No lane closures are anticipated. Workers will be on the bridges’ shoulders 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. weekdays.

Motorists will navigate slight lane shifts with minor traffic disruptions during the daily set up and breakdown of equipment. Lee DOT will place variable message signs to alert drivers.

The purpose of the inspection is to check the status of the repairs made to selected cracks, as well as to evaluate the performance of the different materials that were used in those repairs. Additionally, workers will monitor cracks identified in prior inspection reports.
