Causeway Bridge officials will close the southbound portion of the bridge between the hours of noon and 2 p.m. Thursday.

The closure is necessary so that crews can begin pulling a truck below the bridge, out of the water.

The truck is that of the deceased 19-year-old man who drove off of the Causeway Monday afternoon.

Officials were expected to lift the car out of the water Wednesday but because of weather conditions, the effort will have to be postponed.

Officials ask drivers on the northbound side of the bridge to be patient as there may be delays due to the closure on the southbound side of the bridge.
