The Florida East Coast (FEC) railroad bridge over the New River in downtown Ft. Lauderdale will be closed or offer restricted access for two weeks beginning April 2.
The bridge will be in the down position and closed to marine traffic from 10 p.m. Sunday, April 2, to 8 a.m. Monday, April 3, and again from 10 p.m. Sunday, April 16, to 10 a.m. Monday, April 17.
In between — from 8 a.m. Monday, April 3, to 10 p.m. Sunday, April 16 — the bridge will be in the down position but will open to marine traffic on-demand. The bridge will open and close by use of a crane.
The U.S. Coast Guard approved the deviation to the existing operating schedule.
All Aboard Florida is rehabilitating the bridge before it begins its Brightline passenger rail service later this year.
