Updated:

There have been delays and the move of the oversized trailer across the Sanibel Causeway affecting traffic will not take place until 3-4 p.m. today, Jan. 5.

Two-way traffic will be impacted ONLY when the move begins at the Toll Plaza., officials said. After that, all off-island traffic will flow freely. On-island traffic will experience intermittent delays.

LCSO will have deputies on site to manage traffic.

Check the Lee County Sheriff's Office Facebook page Friday for updates or call 477-1000

Sanibel Police Chief William Dalton advises this vehicle will not enter the roadways on Sanibel until the early morning hours on Saturday.

Traffic conditions will be more favorable for its safe transit of the island at that time. Any questions regarding impacts to Sanibel can be directed to the Sanibel Police Department at 239-472-3111.

Motorists heading onto Sanibel Friday may notice a short closure of the Sanibel Causeway Road sometime between 10:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m. due to a mobile home move that is going to require the Lee County Sheriff's Office to shut down parts of the Causeway so the oversize load can get through safely.

Deputies will do the best they can to impact traffic as minimally as possible, officials said, adding the move is expected to take up to half an hour but that motorists are being notified of the four-hour window earmarked for the move.
