Major Bridge Rehabilitation Scheduled in Wilton Manors
- The NE 26th Street Bridge is just west of U.S. 1 -

BROWARD COUNTY, FL - Broward County Highway and Bridge Maintenance Division (HBMD) will be performing major bridge rehabilitation in Wilton Manors. The bridge rehab is focused on addressing structural issues identified in a recent FDOT bridge inspection report. The work, funded by the gas tax, will begin on September 5, 2023. It is expected to be completed by May 2024, barring any unforeseen conditions and/or weather delays. 

HBMD has developed an innovative design and construction method that minimizes impacts to traffic and nearby businesses and residents during construction. This new design, one of the first in Florida, allows for most of the work to be performed on the bridge's underside by using floating platforms in the canal, as opposed to a conventional design which would have required all work to be performed at the top of the bridge, resulting in significant traffic impacts.

The majority of the construction will not necessitate any lane closures except for four weeks when bridge deck waterproofing and resurfacing is performed. In preparation for this work, a single lane closure will also take place for an additional two weeks.  Driveways and sidewalks will remain accessible.

Highway and Bridge Maintenance Division can be reached at 954-357-6040. Project Manager Stanley Bateman can be reached at 954-647-6490 or

Broward County appreciates your patience as we complete this necessary bridge rehabilitation.
