Beam placement underway
The first of more than a thousand “Florida I-beams” have been placed for the new Pensacola Bay Bridge. The beams connect the trophy pieces one-to-another and will eventually support the bridge deck and riding surface.
Construction crews continue to drive piles and place trophy pieces for the new Pensacola Bay Bridge, but a new milestone will be achieved soon with the placement of the first concrete beams.
The construction team reached a milestone Thursday, Oct. 26 with the setting of the first "trophy piece."
