Andrews Avenue Drawbridge Rehabilitation Project
Work on the Andrews Avenue Drawbridge in downtown Fort Lauderdale continues. The drawbridge is now open to vehicular and pedestrian traffic, however one-lane road closures will remain in effect through March 2020. During this time only one southbound and one northbound lane will be open.
From October 2019 - January 2020, pedestrians are to follow the marked detour and use the temporary walkway on the west side of the bridge while rehabilitation of the south side pedestrian ramp and the bridge control tower continues. Riverwalk amenities are accessible via sidewalks within Bubier Park (east of the bridge), or via the southeast bridge sidewalk.
Boaters will notice minimal impact to navigation. Once the rehabilitation project is completed, the drawbridge will be storm resistant, more reliable and quieter.
