Residents and visitors tired of long traffic delays at the Big Carlos Pass bridge on the island's the south end will get some relief after Friday when the re-surfacing project gets postponed until after season.

"I spoke to Paul Weingard with the Florida Department of Transportation today, and he explained that the reason the project is being done this time of year – when it's not raining every day - is because the surface has to have time to dry,” said Councilman Alan Mandel. "However - in response to numerous complaints – he told me that the contractor has agreed to stop work on Friday and finish the project after season.”
