Construction began at the new pedestrian bridge over Marvin D. Adams Waterway in Key Largo in February and is expected to be completed in December.

Traffic on U.S. 1 and boat use through Adams Cut will be affected from 10 p.m. July 21 to 5 a.m. July 22 while a 120-foot concrete beam is installed for the new pedestrian bridge over the Marvin D. Adams Waterway in Key Largo.

Southbound traffic will be closed approaching the bridge at mile marker 103.3. Traffic will be diverted to the northbound lane, which is being divided into two lanes. Traffic will be allowed to travel slowly in both directions, but may be stopped periodically.

No boat traffic will be allowed through Adams Cut during those hours.

The $1.18 million pedestrian bridge is expected to be finished in December. It is the last piece of the U.S. 1 Bayside Shared Use Path that stretches from about mile marker 99 to 106 and provides a safe route for people to walk, run and bike, according to Monroe County spokeswoman Cammy Clark.
