TRAFFIC UPDATES

October 15: The Florida Department of Transportation has announced that repairs to the Pensacola Bay Bridge will require approximately six months to complete. The bridge will remain closed while repairs are underway. During the closure, drivers may use State Road 281/Garcon Point Bridge (I-10, Exit 22) and State Road 87 (I-10 Exit 31) as detour routes. Marine traffic should observe the U.S. Coast Guard mandated a 500-yard buffer zone around all bridge construction activities. Vessels crossing beneath the bridge should use ONLY the navigational channel. Other areas may present the potential for underwater hazards. LEARN MORE
