For bridge status updates mariners may call the bridge tender at +1954-581-4505.

ORIGINAL POST OCT. 28:

A section of the New River in Ft. Lauderdale, at the CSX railroad bridge over the south fork, will be closed to marine traffic from 5 a.m. on Thurs., Nov. 5 through noon on Mon., Nov. 9 while the contractor replaces the span of the bridge that is over the channel. The 2015 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show runs during those same dates.

“We apologize in advance for any inconvenience caused by this closure and appreciate your patience while this critical project milestone is completed,” said FDOT Broward Construction Public Information Officer Dayana Iglesias.

The CSX Railroad rolling lift bridge is located just west of I-95 over the south fork of the New River. Follow the progress of the project at http://www.d4fdot.com/bcfdot/CSX_Bridge_Replacement_SouthFork_NewRiver_FtLauderdale.asp

One thought on “Section on south fork of New River to close for construction

  1. Donna Casey

    The New River Bridge over the South fork of the New River has been closed to marine traffic for over 30 minutes now. What’s the hold up? There is no answer at the published phone numbers given online to call 954-581-4505 or 954-581-6434. Frustrating on this cold S. FL night.
