LEE COUNTY, Fla.  — Due to a Veterans Day event drivers in Lee County will have one fewer option for crossing the Caloosahatchee River.

The Midpoint Madness Veterans Day 5K Run/Walk will close the Midpoint Bridge from 6 to 9 PM tonight.

Motorists are encouraged to use the Cape Coral Bridge or the U.S. 41 and Business 41 bridges as alternate routes.

The race will begin at 7 PM.

Proceeds from this event will benefit the Fort Myers YMCA youth and family scholarship program.
For information about the annual nighttime Veterans Day event, contact the Fort Myers YMCA  or the Fort Myers Track Club.  Pre- and post-race activities will be at Royal Palm Square at the base of the Midpoint Bridge in Fort Myers.
