Flyover bridge from MacArthur Causeway to Alton Road to be closed nightly this week

The flyover bridge from the MacArthur Causeway to Alton Road will be closed for resurfacing overnight from Sunday to Thursday.

The Florida Department of Transportation will close the flyover from 9 p.m. Sunday to 5:30 a.m. Monday, then from midnight to 5:30 a.m. Monday through Thursday. It is expected to reopen by 5:30 a.m. Friday, according to project spokeswoman Heather Leslie.

Workers will be repaving Alton Road beneath the bridge, as well as the landing of the flyover.

During the closures, drivers wanting to get to Alton Road from the causeway will have to continue east onto Fifth Street, turn left at Lenox Avenue, left on Sixth Street and right on to Alton Road.
