Due to the mechanical failure of the Gasparilla Island Swingbridge across the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway, Gasparilla, Florida, this bridge has been placed on an hourly schedule and will only open on the top of the hour at all times except that from 2:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. the bridge will be allowed to open every two hours. Therefore, this bridge will open hourly except that openings will only be allowed at 2:00 p.m., 4:00 p.m., 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Starting at 9:00 p.m. the bridge will be opening at the top of the hour only.
