Lagos State Government plans to close the Third Mainland Bridge for 24- hours from midnight tomorrow February 26, 2021 to midnight of Saturday.
Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, in a statement said the closure of the bridge will enable the contractors move the equipment used during the rehabilitation from the bridge and allow the Oworonshoki and Adeniji bound lanes open to traffic.
He advised motorists from Ogudu, Alapere and Gbagada to use Ikorodu Road, Jibowu and Yaba, as alternative routes, while Iyana Oworoshoki-bound traffic from Lagos-Island, Iddo, Oyingbo, Adekunle and Yaba should use Herbert Macaulay Way, Jibowu and Ikorodu Road as alternative routes.
The Commissioner assured that traffic management personnel would be deployed along the routes to reduce traffic impediments during the closure.
He commended Lagos residents for their cooperation during the repair on the bridge, assuring that it was now safer for use.
