Construction has begun to install a new chilled water plant in downtown Bradenton. The new chiller will mean significant financial savings and energy efficiencies, and a decrease in the County's carbon footprint. During the initial construction period, there will be temporary road closures in some areas of downtown Bradenton. In addition, the construction will close Central Library from Nov. 9 - 11 and again from Feb. 7 through April 15, 2015. Click through the slideshow below for more information on the chiller project. And thank you for your patience during the construction period. read on Temporary road closures planned for downtown Bradenton during downtown chiller plant construction
