Pensacola Bay Bridge “By the Numbers”
Here’s a snapshot of Pensacola Bay Bridge construction progress through mid-July.
Test and production piles driven: 1,450 of 2,124
Trophy pieces placed: 124 of 416
I-Beams placed: 235 of 1,020
Bridge deck spans poured: 38 of 210
The project remains on-schedule for completion of the first (eventual eastbound, Pensacola to Gulf Breeze) bridge in early 2019. At that time, two lanes of both east and westbound traffic will be transitioned to it while the current structure is demolished and the eventual westbound (Gulf Breeze to Pensacola) bridge is completed in mid-2020. Completion timeframes are tentative and may vary based on weather or other variables.
