Repairs to close lanes on Skyway

Southbound lanes of the Sunshine Skyway will be closed 7 to 9 a.m. Saturday while crews jack up the bridge to replace bearings. The bearings allow the bridge to expand and contract. The bridge is expected to be closed briefly for four Saturdays while a contractor replaces the bearings on four piers. The $181,000 job is being done by Tom Quinn Co. of Palmetto.Correction

Judge Gerald Tjoflat sits on the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals. A story Thursday gave a different jurisdiction.
