Pensacola Bay Bridge “By the Numbers”
Crews are working to drive concrete piles, place trophy pieces, install beams, and pour bridge deck spans for the new Pensacola Bay Bridge. Here’s a look at the progress on those activities through February of this year.
- Test and production piles driven: 987 of 2,124
- Trophy pieces placed: 46 of 416
- Florida I-Beams set: 75 of 1,020
- Concrete bridge deck spans poured: 7 of 210
The project remains on-schedule for completion of the first (eventual eastbound, Pensacola to Gulf Breeze) bridge in January 2019.
The eventual westbound bridge (Gulf Breeze to Pensacola) is slated for completion in summer 2020.
Keep in mind schedules may vary based on weather and a host of other conditions that could impact a construction project of this duration, magnitude, and complexity.
The speed limit remains 45 mph on the bridge. The team encourages drivers to slow down and refrain from texting or taking photos while driving.
