Sheridan bridge closure in Hollywood extended into October – South Florida Sun Sentinel


Hollywood residents and visitors will have to wait until mid-October for the reopening of the Sheridan Street drawbridge, which has been closed all summer for renovations.
The span over the Intracoastal Waterway, which has been closed to all traffic since mid-June, will remain inaccessible through Oct. 15, the Florida Department of Transportation announced.
The department cited supply chain problems with electrical and mechanical components, and bad weather which delayed exterior improvements such as a new paint job.
“The department is expediting the remaining scope of work and the contractor has committed additional crews to reopen the bridge to the community as quickly and safely as possible,” according to a statement issued Tuesday.
