The Florida Department of Transportation says they will reopen all lanes of the Mathews Bridge to traffic this Tuesday evening after rush hour.
Initially WOKV had heard preliminary talks of opening the bridge in phases – a few lanes at a time.
“No,” says FDOT spokesman Mike Goldman. “This is a full opening of the bridge.”
“Everything just worked,” Goldman says. “The fact that this was such a unique operation that obviously hadn’t happened before – there was some extreme delicate engineering involved – and it just all fit together within the last couple of days.”
