On Thursday July 26 at midnight, Third Mainland Bridge will be shut down and reopened on Sunday July 29 at midnight.
Adedamola Kuti, The federal controller of works, Lagos stated this yesterday, saying that the closure was to enable engineers conduct assessment tests on some sections of the bridge.

He futher explained that if vehicles were allowed on the bridge during the tests, the movement would alter the readings expected from the tests.
Kuti said the results of the tests would enable them to determine how to embark on actual repair work, adding that details of alternative routes would be provided to members of the public tomorrow after a stakeholders’ meeting in the afternoon tomorrow.
