SR 78 over Kissimmee River Bridge:  Construction project: Motorists should expect alternating eastbound and westbound lane closures on SR 78 over Kissimmee River Bridge for the duration of this project. Traffic will be reduced to one lane during construction, and motorists will take turns crossing the bridge. Traffic control lights will be used to notify motorists of their turn to cross the bridge. The travel lane will be reduced to 12 feet during construction, so wide loads will not be able to cross the bridge. This lane closure is necessary for crews to make necessary updates to the bridge. Improvements include updating the bridge infrastructure, replacing the deck grating and refreshing the paint. Motorists should expect delays and use caution as crews work in the roadway. Work is expected to be completed in summer 2017.
