Temporary repairs to the west Winterberry Bridge have been completed and approved by FDOT, according to a press release from the city. The bridge is now open for vehicular and pedestrian traffic. 

The bridge closed Wednesday to traffic "immediately" following concerns of a potential collapse, the Florida Department of Transportation mandated.

According to the press release, the post-tensioning system had come loose, making the bridge susceptible to collapse.
