The Camino Real bridge, scheduled as recently as May 22 to reopen June 20, will stay closed to vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians while construction teams conduct a functional inspection.
The reopening has not been scheduled yet.
"At this time we cannot confirm a bridge opening date," said Kristine Frazell-Smith, who manages Palm Beach County's local roads section, which is in charge of the $8.9 million project.
Lucia Bonavita, senior aide to County Commissioner Robert Weinroth, said she was told the bridge will not open until sometime in July. Weinroth's staff was planning a ceremony to mark the reopening.
The bridge closed to land traffic on April 12, 2018. Crews started working nights in mid-May to meet the anticipated June 20 reopening.
