Bridge Closure Notice

Daytime Single Leaf Operations on the Bridge of Lions Through June 10

St. Augustine, Fla. – As part of the Bridge of Lions rehabilitating project, channel restrictions are in place through June 10. However, weather and unforeseen circumstance may delay completion. Restrictions are in place to safely complete cleaning and painting work under the drawbridge.

Drawbridge operating schedule:

  • Daytime single leaf operations (minimum two-hour notification for a full span), from 7 am to 7 pm
  • Nighttime double leaf operations as normal.

Additionally, mariners are advised to proceed with caution as there is floating equipment in the waterway. Astron General Contracting Co. Inc began the $1.4 million cleaning and painting rehabilitation project in May 2018. The Bridge of Lions replacement project was completed in 2011. However, this project is necessary to promote the health of the structure.
