The Federal Government has announced plans to temporarily shut down the Iyana Oworonshoki-Adeniji Adele section of the Third Mainland Bridge starting from 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, January 9, 2024.
This update was shared earlier today, Thursday, December 28, 2023, by the Federal Controller of Works for Lagos State, Mrs. Olukorede Kesha. The closure specifically affects the Lagos Island-bound carriageway of the bridge.

“The Federal Government through the Federal Ministry of Works wishes to inform the motoring public that the emergency repairs of Third Mainland Bridge in Lagos will continue.
Consequent upon the above, motorists are hereby advised to use alternative routes,” she said.
