Draper Lake Bridge open

Special to The Sun
The bridge at Draper Lake is now open.

The Draper Lake Bridge construction has been completed and is now open to the public on Scenic Highway 30A.

Please note that the temporary signal located at the C.R. 83/U.S. 98 intersection will be switched to "Flash Mode" on March 2 and will remain so until Big Redfish Lake Bridge is constructed, according to a press release from the county. 

At that time the signal will be allowed to operate for maintenance of traffic during the construction activities. We are pleased to report the Draper Lake Bridge Project has opened ahead of schedule.

The Florida Department of Transportation will conduct a signal warrant analysis in the near future to determine if a permanent signal is warranted at the U.S. 98/C.R. 83 intersection.
