Manatee County's Green Bridge traffic troubles

  • 0

MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. - The Green Bridge that connects Palmetto and Bradenton is a morning traffic trouble spot, according to the mayor of Palmetto.  The Florida Department of Transportation is now looking into ways to ease morning back ups.

The Palmetto mayor says the traffic issue got worse after parts of I-75 were closed down following overpass damage from an accident, forcing drivers to find alternate routes.

Local engineers and FDOT officials will review the traffic lights on the Bradenton side of the bridge to see if that is causing delays.
