The Florida Department of Transportation plans the following road closures for Heckscher Drive:

Motorists using Heckscher Drive August 5 should be alert to back-to-back closures planned for the Sisters Creek Bridge between 2-4 p.m. The bridge will be closed to vehicles beginning at 2 p.m. for 45 minutes, will open at 2:45 for 15 minutes and then close again at 3 p.m. for another 45 minutes. The closures are necessary to allow the bridge to be opened manually for boats to pass through the channel. Because the mechanical system is being replaced, a crane must lift the bridge span to open it to boats.

The 45-minute closures are scheduled between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. seven days a week with a 4-hour notice provided to motorists. They should be completed by August 19 when school begins.
