EB traffic shifts on Pinellas Bayway Bridge Monday

St. Petersburg, Florida -- The Florida Department of Transportation will shift eastbound traffic only to the new span of the Pinellas Bayway Bridge on Monday, March 25.  

This traffic switch will take place between 7 p.m. and midnight. Motorists should expect delays during this time.  The inside eastbound toll lane will be closed for approximately three weeks while roadway work is completed for the anticipated traffic shift for westbound traffic a few weeks later.

Once both eastbound and westbound traffic have been switched to the new span, the old bridge will be demolished and then the other new span will be constructed.

As part of the traffic switch, drivers accessing the Pinellas Bayway (SR 682) from Bahia Del Mar Boulevard S. or Sun Boulevard S. will only be able to make a right turn onto the Bayway. 

Drivers wishing to go west from Bahia Del Mar will need to make a right turn and then a U-turn at the signalized intersection of SR 679 and SR 682 or use the southern entrance/exit on SR 679. 

Additionally, drivers wishing to go east from Sun Blvd S. will need to use the signalized intersection of Sun Boulevard W. and the Bayway. Drivers traveling the Bayway will not be allowed to make a left turn onto Bahia Del Mar or Sun Boulevard.
