Upcoming follow-up inspection slated for Sanibel Causeway

Fort Myers, FL, May 4, 2015 — Lee County Department of Transportation consultant TY Lin International will perform the final planned bridge inspection on the Sanibel Causeway to monitor repair work that was completed in September 2014. No lane closures are anticipated.

The work is scheduled to begin May 11 and is expected to be complete before Memorial Day Weekend, weather permitting. 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. Variable message signs will be placed to alert drivers. 

The purpose of this inspection is to check the status of the repairs made to selected cracks last fall 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.
