This is why “pep talk” is unofficial: officially, we would have never announced a lane closure on the causeway until it was cast in stone, for sure, cones on the highway and flagman waving you over. Things change and, they have. Originally, the southbound lanes on the causeway were going down to two lanes after Memorial Weekend, for a few days, to redirect all traffic onto the new bridge while the old spans get dismantled. That plan’s on hold for now; just expect your standard slowdown. If we hear more we’ll pass it along.
