Treasure Island Causeway bridge to close for several hours Friday morning

TREASURE ISLAND —The Treasure Island Causeway bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic from 2 to 5 a.m. Friday to begin testing and inspection of damaged cylinders. Those cylinders were blamed when the bridge failed to close properly Feb. 23 and traffic was held up for hours. The bridge will be in the raised position while work is being done and still open for boat traffic.

Talks have begun with Eaton Corp., the cylinder manufacturer, about how to resolve the broken seals found on several of the 16 hydraulic cylinders that operate the drawbridge.
