Bradenton Road Closure: September 25 - EXTENDED UNTIL NOV. 1

The City of Bradenton has closed 18th Ave W between Freedom Village and 68th St W to repair a street washout from the recent heavy rainfall. Preliminary investigation suggests that a joint on buried 54-inch storm drain pipe that crosses under the 6700 block of 18th St W may have failed. This resulted in the undermining of the road base and the subsequent washout of an approximately 15’x20’ portion of 18th Ave W, effectively making the road impassible. The City of Bradenton has barricaded the affected road segment, established detours and dispatched repair crews.  The City expects that the 6700 block of 18th Ave W will remain closed from one to two weeks to allow repairs to the drainage system as well as the roadway.  The 6700 block of 18th Ave W does not have driveway or cross-street connections, so no residences or businesses will lose access during the repair operations.
