Camino Real Bridge closing for a year in Boca

A head's up for commuters in Boca Raton, the Camino Real Bridge closed Thursday morning for a year. 

The multi-million dollar project will renovate the bridge and make it wider and safer for walkers and bikers. 

The city said  it plans for 12-13 months of construction with work during the day and week. 

Detours and traffic signals will be put into place during construction.

The bridge closed Thursday morning at around 5 a.m. 

The Camino Real Bridge is one of five bridges in the county deemed as structurally deficient.

The Florida Department of Transportation says that means a bridge should undergo a series of repairs or replacement within the next six years.

It is suggested to use Palmetto Park Rd or Hillsboro Blvd. as alternates.
