Repair Program Overview

Repair Program Overview

The Pensacola Bay Bridge sustained significant damage on September 16, 2020 when high winds and seas associated with Hurricane Sally caused construction barges to break free of their moorings and strike the bridge. 

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) and its partners have made the reopening of the bridge a priority.  FDOT has assembled a multidiscipline team of engineers and construction experts that are working around the clock to make the needed repairs and “reconnect” the communities of Pensacola and Gulf Breeze.

The goal is to repair and restore four lanes of traffic for this vital transportation link by March 2021. 

Motorists should continue to use all available detour routes, which include the Garcon Point Bridge and State Road 87. Tolls on the Garcon Point Bridge have been temporarily suspended.

Once repairs are complete, all four lanes will be open with no load restrictions. As each repair method is developed, FDOT will be conducting reviews to ensure the contractor is hitting all milestones in the established schedule.
