Clearwater, Florida -- The eastbound travel lanes on the Pinellas Bayway Bridge will be closed on Thursday, June 13.
The closure will last between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., in order to continue the removal of the low level bridge. Approximately 30% of the old bridge has already been removed.
The removal of the two drawbridge foundations will require a minimal underwater explosive detonation. Local residents will hear a loud boom, however there will be virtually no visual impacts since the detonation will occur underwater.
