The City of Titusville, Florida / NewsThe A. Max Brewer Bridge navigation channel will be closed Aug. 17th-19th.
Titusville –Beginning Tuesday, Aug. 17 through Thursday, Aug. 19, the navigation channel at the A. Max Brewer Bridge in Titusville will be closed to marine traffic. The closures are from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. each day to allow bridge beams to be installed over the main channel. The contractor has notified the U.S. Coast Guard, which will send a Notice to Mariners regarding the channel closure.
The $44.75 million project consists of replacing the current swing span bridge and the south relief bridge. The new structure will be a high level, fixed-span bridge over the Indian River. A 300-foot long fishing pier is planned. The existing bridge will remain open for traffic until the new bridge is built. The project is expected to be complete in summer 2011.
Please be aware that construction schedules are subject to change based on weather and other unforeseen circumstances. Travelers are urged to pay attention to advisories and drive with caution and care.
