Bridge Replacement Work to Close Road Near Big Bend Power Station
Beginning Monday, June 17, the Florida Department of Transportation will close Big Bend Road (CR 672) just west of Wyandotte Road in Apollo Beach. This closure is necessary for crews to replace the existing bridge on Big Bend Road between Dickman Road and Wyandotte Road.
This section of roadway is expected to close for approximately four months, weather permitting. During this closure, motorists will be detoured around the work zone using US 41, Apollo Beach Boulevard and Dickman Road.
Access to businesses, including Big Bend Power Station, will be maintained during this closure. Advanced warning signs and electronic message boards will be used to assist motorists traveling through the detour route. Motorists may anticipate heavier than normal volumes of traffic on nearby roads during this closure.
The nearly $1 million bridge replacement project is expected to finish by the end of the year.
