Although it is a bit delayed, as of today (June 13, 2022) the Sheridan St. bridge crossing the intracoastal waterway will be closed for approximately 90 days. There will be no east / west traffic on the bridge whatsoever during this time. Alternate routes will be Dania Beach Blvd. to the north and Hollywood Blvd. to the south.
The Dania Beach Boulevard bridge is open and may be a good route for visitors coming down US 1 (Federal Highway) from the south who wish to reach businesses and homes in the North Beach area. To the South, the Hollywood Boulevard bridge and Hallandale Boulevard bridges are good alternatives for anyone coming off of I-95 or US 1 from the south.
The Florida Department of Transportation has released the following information:
Eastbound traffic will be detoured via US-1, Hollywood Boulevard, or Dania Beach Boulevard. Westbound traffic will be detoured via SR A1A, Hollywood Boulevard, or Dania Beach Boulevard. Access to local traffic and the Anne Kolb Nature Center will be maintained.
Project improvements include installing bicycle-friendly/anti-slip walking plates along the bridge’s moveable spans, removing existing curb and adding a 32-inch traffic barrier between the sidewalk and roadway, removing and replacing the outer pedestrian railing, adding new pedestrian gates in each direction, renovating the existing tender house, upgrading electrical and mechanical components, and access platforms on the bridge.
For or any questions, or concerns please contact FDOT Community Outreach Specialist, Rebecca Guerrero at email@example.com
The Sheridan Street bridge is being upgraded for a variety of safety and mechanical issues and this is a good thing.
A road or bridge closure is never convenient but let’s ensure everyone will be able to visit by providing friendly advice and helping them with the best possible way to come to Hollywood Beach.
