The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), District One, is holding a public information meeting to discuss the upcoming proposed structural improvements to the State Road 789 Longboat Key Pass Drawbridge over Longboat Key Pass in Manatee County, Florida (Financial Project ID 436415-1-52-01). The meeting will be held Tuesday, February 26, 2019, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Longboat Key Town Hall, 501 Bay Isles Road, Longboat Key, Florida.
The meeting will be an open house format, no formal presentation will be made. Those attending the meeting will be able to view displays, ask questions, and discuss the work one-on-one with members of the project team.  We encourage all interested people to attend and express their views regarding the project and information presented.
FDOT is sending notices to all property owners located within 300 feet or more on either side of the center line of SR 789 in the project segment.
The proposed improvements include repairs to the concrete approach span, and the bascule steel span.  Construction is tentatively scheduled to start in May, 2019 with completion estimated by late 2019. During construction, motorists can expect periodic overnight lane closures and limited overnight full closures, which will limit or prohibit all vehicles on the bridge.
