On April 15, approximately 1/2 of the concrete deck (the northern half) was poured for the ongoing STH 23 bridge project. On Thursday approximately another 1/2 of the concrete deck (the southern half) will be poured. After that there will be many smaller pours that will finish the deck and complete the parapet walls.

The project is still on schedule to reopen the bridge to traffic in June. The bridge will have one lane open and will utilize temporary traffic signals to alternate traffic between northbound to southbound vehicles. The entire project is to be completed and the bridge fully open to traffic in September.
