District Temporarily Closes Airboat Slide in Citrus County

News Release

The Southwest Florida Water Management District (District) has temporarily closed the Brogden Bridge airboat slide at Turner Camp Road in Citrus County due to required maintenance associated with the wooden deck. The slide is located between the Hernando and Inverness pools of the Tsala Apopka Chain of Lakes and is expected to be reopened by Nov. 17.

Attempts to use the slide in its current condition could damage airboats.

The District operates two additional airboat slides in the area, the Moccasin Slough slide and the Wysong-Coogler slide. Both slides remain open and can be used during the Brogden Bridge airboat slide closure.

For more information, please call the Operations Section at the District’s Brooksville Headquarters at 1-800-423-1476 or (352) 796-7211.
