The Florida Department of Transportation released construction activities next week for the Sanibel Causeway and the project team does not anticipate any lane closures through the end of January. However, traffic may be stopped temporarily to allow crews to move equipment and machinery across the travel lanes. Otherwise, no major delays are expected, FDOT said.

Sanibel Causeway Emergency Restoration: As a part of FDOT’s Emergency Restoration of the Sanibel Causeway, crews continue work on McGregor Boulevard and the Sanibel Causeway from Port Comfort Road to Sanibel Island. Westbound McGregor Boulevard has been reduced to one lane approaching and through the toll plaza. LeeWay has resumed normal electronic toll collection.

• Crews continue driving sheet pile around the causeway islands.
• The causeway islands surrounding the temporary roadway are an active work zone and are currently closed for public access.
• Bicyclists are encouraged to utilize another mode of transportation to travel the causeway.
• Pedestrians are not permitted on the Sanibel Causeway.

Motorists are reminded to obey the posted speed limit of 20 mph. Crews continue earthwork on the causeway islands. Use caution and watch for workers and construction vehicles entering and leaving the roadway.
