The Florida Department of Transportation is conducting a road repair project on West Manatee Avenue/State Road 64 from the Perico Bay Club east to 75th Street in Bradenton.

A DOT press release said any road resurfacing will be at night, 9 p.m.-5 a.m., and accompanied by a flagging operation for vehicular traffic.

The project is slated to finish in mid-summer.

The maintenance/repair project of the Cortez Bridge is continuing, the DOT said. Most of the work is being conducted on weeknights. Crews will work on the bridge’s seawall on the Cortez side this week.

Any lane closures are 9 p.m.-5 a.m. during the week. If the drawbridge is raised for maintenance, it will be from 2 a.m.-3 a.m. and for no more than 15 minutes, the DOT press release said.

The project is expected to finish in late 2014 or early 2015.
