The ever-busy bridge will undergo repair works for the next six months.
The Federal Ministry of Works has announced that the ever-busy 3rd mainland bridge in Lagos will be closed for six months, beginning from July 24.
The Federal Controller of Works in Lagos, Olukayode Popoola, made this known to reporters on Monday.
He said consultations are currently ongoing for another phase of repair works to begin on the 11.8 km bridge.
According to Popoola, the repair works would start on the outward mainland section of the bridge.
He said the Ministry is already working with relevant agencies to ensure the free flow of traffic during the period.
The bridge has gone through a series of repair works and was the last shut in August 2018 for a three-day investigative maintenance check.
