Smokehouse Bridge Replacement Starts Sept 2014 (aka Collier

Per local newspaper ... see link

"start(ing) work to replace the bridge in September. Work hours would be 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. six days a week until the project is completed in July 2015, with pile driving limited to daylight hours.

Collier Boulevard will be closed to vehicles between West Elkcam Circle and Tigertail Court for most of the construction, when there will be one lane of bridge traffic on either side. Vehicles would be detoured onto Bald Eagle Drive and San Marco Road."

Smokehouse Bridge Traffic Lane Closures

Posted Date: 7/30/2014

Beginning Monday morning, August 4th, 2014, the contractor for the Smokehouse Bay Bridge Project will begin the traffic pattern modifications to enable the closure of the southbound bridge. These lane closures will allow work to begin on the major utility relocations and the directional bore for the 20” water main under the channel.

The lane closures and traffic detours will begin in the vicinity of W. Elkcam Circle and will continue southbound to south of Tigertail Ct. There will be two-way, single lane traffic in each north and south bound directions within these construction limits. All the advance warning signs and message boards are in conformance with the standard Florida Department of Transportation guidelines and will be continuously monitored for traffic movement. This shift in traffic patterns is the first step in our 10 month construction period and will remain in effect until the summer of 2015 on a 24/7 basis.

I think there may be one side open with lanes heading in opposite directions. I'm back on the 5th. I will let you know

Left side of bridge ( heading south) is open to traffic, one lane in either direction. Not a huge issue in August but season will be another story I'm sure.

Re: Getting to Tigertail Beach in Sept

I agree with LOB .. It is the off season in Sept ... with one lane open each side it shouldn't be a huge problem.

However in the busy season you may want to go the LONG way to get to it ... From North ... Left off Collier onto Bald Eagle, right on San Marco, North (right) on Collier.... left on Kendall ... left on Hernando

FYI the Winn Dixie Grocery Store Collier Blvd entrance access is closed.

BIG PICTURE ...

This bridge is one of MANY small bridges on Marco ... and it is NOT one of the 2 big bridges letting you on and off Marco Island.

Collier is open, but is a single lane in both directions between Elkam and Tigertaii Court.
