After years of planning, designs for the new Pensacola Bay Bridge have been released to the public.
The Florida Department of Transportation released the plans following the announcement that FDOT has issued a notice of intent to award Skanska USA Civil Southeast a design-build contract to replace the Pensacola Bay Bridge.
The notice of intent to award allows FDOT and the Skanska project team to work to finalize the requirements of the $400 million bridge.
The typical section of each new bridge will consist of three 12-foot lanes in one
direction with 10-foot inside and outside shoulders. The bridges will include 10-foot wide shared use pedestrian and cyclist paths on the outside of each bridge with a concrete barrier separation between the outside roadway shoulder and the path. A 150-foot wide horizontal and 65-foot vertical clearance envelope will be provided for the main channel through the new bridges. The project length is approximately 3.7 miles.
