Bridge of Lions to close for light installation
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. -- The Bridge of Lions will close Tuesday night so crews can install a test pattern of new lights.
The City of St. Augustine released new renderings for planned improvements to the landmark. Leaders say they need about $200,000 to finish the project. The idea was sparked seven years ago. One local company agreed to do the work, but had to back out because of the cost.
Crews will close one lane beginning at 9 p.m. Traffic will alternate across the bridge throughout the night. Marine traffic is not scheduled to be affected. The work is expected to be completed by 6 a.m. City leaders want to turn on a dozen lights for the Fourth of July.
