The Simpson Bay Lagoon Authority (SLAC) would like to inform vehicle drivers that the Simpson Bay Bridge will be temporarily closed for motorized traffic, as well as pedestrians and maritime traffic on Thursday, January 12 at 4:00AM.
Anyone in the area at that time should exercise extreme caution as heavy equipment will be in operation.
Drivers can make use of the Causeway Bridge to reach their destination.
The closure is in connection with the removal of the damaged Operations Control Booth.
A Mega Yacht while entering the Simpson Bay Lagoon struck the SLAC Operations Control Booth on Sunday, January 8 which incurred severe structural damage.
There were no injuries to the bridge operator. Wires leading to the operations consoles were also damaged, but the bridge remains in operation for maritime traffic.
