Sunshine Bridge Will Partially Close Thursday Night

News Generic Getty RF

There will be intermittent closures on the Sunshine Bridge on Thursday night for more in-depth inspections of the bridge.

Officials say the closures will take place between 8 p.m. and midnight, and one direction of traffic will be closed at a time so crews can more closely inspect the bridge after a tanker collision on Sunday.

While they say there is no structural damage to the bridge, a 600-foot Dank Silver Tanker slammed into a beam and damaged fencing at the bottom.

This is the second time in less than a year there was a collision with the Sunshine Bridge.
