Why were lanes closed on the Courtney Campbell Causeway?
The lane closures were part of other larger projects. An $8.3 million project to replace the existing lighting system and install six new traffic monitoring cameras and 12 vehicle detection devices to help traffic engineers manage traffic flow on the Causeway between McMullen Booth Road and Rocky Point is expected to be complete by next spring. A $12 million project to build a new bridge west of the Ben T. Davis beach to improve water circulation and quality is expected to be complete this summer.
