U.S. 1 northbound shifting to new San Sebastian bridge | News
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- At 7:30 p.m. Monday, portions of the San Sebastian River Bridge will be closed.
First Coast News has more on the project and how you can get around the closures on U.S. 1.
The closures are all part of the San Sebastian River Bridge replacement project. Monday night starting at 7:30, U.S. 1 northbound over the bridge will be shut down.
The shift to the new bridge is expected to be complete by 7 a.m. Tuesday morning. The U.S. 1 southbound shift to the bridge happened in August.
After the shift, access to U.S. 1 from Almeria Street will be closed through the end of October.
Also noteworthy: each week, U.S. 1 will be completely closed on Tuesday and Wednesday nights from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. to allow for relocation of construction equipment and materials.
So how do you get around it?
King Street and Malaga Street are the alternate routes and we're told police will be in the area to help direct traffic.
The entire $13.5 million project is set to be finished in the spring of 2013.
