Re-purposing concrete and steel

Re-purposing concrete and steel

The demolition of the old Pensacola Bay Bridge presents opportunities to reuse and recycle the concrete and steel components that have served the region since 1960. The old bridge included more than 47,000 cubic yards of concrete, all of which are being disposed of offshore for building fishing reefs.

Bridge demolition and disposal underway

Work to dispose of concrete debris from the old Pensacola Bay Bridge is underway. Crews are loading the debris aboard barges and transporting it offshore for disposal in areas managed by Escambia County’s Marine Resources Division. The reefs are sure to become favorites for fishing and diving in the Gulf of Mexico.
