Survey work to close Skyway lanes this week

MANATEE — Drivers will experience lane closures and delays on the Sunshine Skyway bridge several nights this week, the Florida Department of Transportation said.

One southbound travel lane, plus the emergency breakdown lane, will be closed on the high levels between the support towers from 10:30 p.m. to 5:30 a.m. Tuesday and Wednesday nights, FDOT said.

On Thursday and Friday nights, one northbound travel lane and the emergency lane will be closed in the same area during the same times.

The closures are needed for survey work, FDOT said.
