Croatia News reported that Pelješac Bridge might be the first victim of the coronavirus in Croatia as the Chinese factory which is building the steel structures for the bridge is temporarily closed. This does not mean that work on the bridge will cease in Croatia, but the question remains what will happen when the time comes to install these new structures. Croatian state-owned Croatian Motorways indicated that the contractor has not asked for an extension. The bridge is scheduled to open on July 31, 2021. Croatian Motorways HAC said "China Road and Bridge Corporation has taken all the necessary measures, first and foremost, to prevent a potential coronavirus health threat to the construction site. They have implemented protective measures at the site and these measures are being enacted according to clear guidelines.”

However, Hrvatske autoceste will not be able to send supervisory engineers to the factory in China due to the rapid spread of the infection in that country.
