Merritt Island Causeway Bridge Construction

Could someone from Titusville please post in the Orlando Forum when the bridge on 407 from the mainland to the Wildlife Refuge opens again?

Thank you.

I no longer live in Titusville, however I found this:

You can get to the refuge and Canaveral National Seashore by going north from Titusville on US 1. There is a sign telling you Merritt Island Refuge just before Oak Hill. You drive right pass Haulover Canal where you can see manatees some days. Hope this helps. Map of refuge:

teachersue,

Thanks.

We drove that route the last time we were there. It adds about half an hour each way to the trip.

The Max Brewer Causeway Bridge is open (except during Space Shuttle STS-131 mission fueling that begins Saturday April 3rd 2010) After the April 5th launch the bridge will re-open. A new high-span bridge is under construction and will eliminate to problem of the 1946 swing-span bridge getting stuck (but we'll all miss it!). The new bridge is on schedule and should be completed by late 2010, hopefully in time for the January 2011 Space Coast Birding & Wildlife Festival, which puts a lot of traffic on the road to reach Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge.
