Fourth of July event to close Cape Coral Bridge

By Staff | Jun 21, 2024

The Lee County Department of Transportation reminds motorists the Cape Coral Bridge will be closed for the Red, White & BOOM celebration from 3 a.m., Thursday, July 4, through 3 a.m., Friday, July 5. Cape Coral Parkway from Del Prado Boulevard to the bridge will also be closed at that time.

Motorists are encouraged to use the Veteran’s Memorial Bridge and Business 41 bridges. Lee DOT will place message boards for motorists; they will remain in place through the holiday and the closing. Motorists should plan for an alternate route. Traffic congestion may be heavier than usual due to the closure of the U.S. 41 bridge for the Florida DOT project.

The Freedom 5K race begins at 7 a.m. on Independence Day. The city celebration begins at 5 p.m. at the foot of the bridge on the Cape Coral Parkway side. Fireworks will follow the celebration at about 9:30 p.m.

For race information, contact the Chamber of Commerce of Cape Coral at 239-549-6900, extension 111. For information about Red, White & BOOM, call Cape Coral Parks and Recreation at 239-573-3128. For more information about DOT, visit www.leegov.com/dot.
