Four lanes of traffic restored to the Pensacola Bay Bridge
June 17, 2021
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has reopened the Pensacola Bay Bridge to four lanes of traffic, re-establishing the safe and efficient connection between the communities of Gulf Breeze and Pensacola.
The accompanying photo shows the first two lanes of westbound traffic flowing on the bridge at approximately 5 a.m. The two eastbound lanes were fully restored shortly before 7 a.m. This is the first time the bridge has been open to four lanes of traffic since suffering significant damage during Hurricane Sally on Sept. 18, 2020.
