Work continues to repair a damaged beam on Gulf to Bay in Clearwater.
Gulf to Bay Boulevard is open to traffic.

According to Kristen Carson with the Florida Department of Transportation, all four girders have been moved. Signal work and cleanup is done.

"The intersection is completely open to traffic now," Carson said just after midnight.

Construction crews were still working on removing the third beam on the old U.S. 19 bridge over State Road 60, aka Gulf-to-Bay Boulevard, Clearwater police reported Wednesday afternoon.

Officials say once the third beam is removed, attention will turn to the fourth and final girder - the damaged one, which could take longer to remove than the other undamaged ones.

Carson reported Wednesday morning that the contractor has been working continuously to get all four girders removed as quickly as possible.

Work is expected to continue into the evening.

Police advise motorists to continue to find alternate routes and avoid the area. Motorists can use Drew Street as a detour to the north, and East Bay Drive as detours.

Gulf to Bay was shut down May 6 after a semi-tractor trailer struck and damaged a girder.

Revised to update that the road is open.
