The Suffolk Public Works department advises that the Carolina Road Bridge, which spans the Cypress Swamp on Route 32, is now open to traffic.

Suffolk Public Works Department said the delayed opening was due to the heavy rain caused by hurricane Ian, which delayed paving operations.

Crews will complete additional minor paving work under traffic in the coming days, officials said in a news release.

The repair and repaving of the detour routes used during this closure are already underway, and crews are working on completing them as quickly as possible.

The project to replace the bridge kicked off in January 2022. Public Works officials offered their thanks the public for their patience.
