Caloosahatchee River Bridge message boards temporarily out of service

By Staff | May 15, 2024

The message boards that display alternate route travel times for motorists traveling northbound towards the Caloosahatchee River Bridge on U.S. 41 are temporarily unable to provide travel time information.

According to Lee County’s Department of Transportation, the message board was struck, severing the fiber optics that are a critical component used for the operation of the travel time device.

While repairs are being made, drivers can expect to see a static or generic message for the next two to three days.

No changes to the designated alternate route are expected.

In the meantime, check www.fl511.com or other navigational Apps for real-time traffic flow and alternate routes. An update will be provided once the message board has been restored.
