Broward County’s Highway and Bridge Maintenance Division is set to begin almost two months of major repairs to a county-owned bridge located on Sheridan Street over Florida’s Turnpike in Hollywood. The bridge is located not far from the south entrance to the Seminole Tribe’s Hollywood Reservation.

Officials said in a news release Aug. 10 that the work is scheduled to begin Aug. 28 and be completed Oct. 14. The work is to be done during the nighttime hours.

The repairs are needed to “address structural issues caused recently by an over-height vehicle that struck the bridge’s concrete beams,” the release said.

Officials said drivers should expect nightly lane closures on Sheridan Street and on Florida’s Turnpike. In addition, one westbound and one eastbound lane on Sheridan Street will be closed for at least one week. Driveways and sidewalks in the construction zone are not expected to be affected.
