Hart Expressway Bridge rehabilitation project to begin Tuesday.
by: Max Marbut Associate Editor

Westbound Beach Boulevard will have daily detours at the Hart Expressway Bridge 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. beginning Tuesday through March 31 as part of the Hart Expressway Bridge rehabilitation project.

The detours are necessary for crews to sandblast and coat steel beams under the bridge over Beach Boulevard.

Westbound Beach Boulevard will be detoured onto westbound Hart Expressway and continue to Atlantic Boulevard. Drivers will then take westbound Atlantic Boulevard and reconnect with Beach Boulevard.

Electronic message boards will be in place to alert drivers of the impending detours. Additional signage will be used to assist motorists throughout the duration of the detour.

The Hart Expressway Bridge rehabilitation project includes the coating of steel beams, minor repair of expansion joints, drainage improvements and the replacement of bearing pads that assist in the distribution of weight and movement on the bridge.

The Florida Department of Transportation awarded the $1.1 million project to Olympus Painting Contractors Inc.
