FDOT Hosts Meeting on $61 Million North Causeway Bridge Project

Tcpalm.com reports, “Construction is expected to start in 2020 and last for 2½ years on the new $61 million, 86-foot-tall North Causeway bridge. [Link added.] More than 100 people on Tuesday [January 31] attended the Florida Department of Transportation’s two-hour meeting on the project. FDOT wants to replace the 55-year-old drawbridge, which connects the barrier island to the [Ft. Pierce] mainland, because it is ‘structurally deficient,’ meaning the bridge is safe for travel but is past its 50-year life cycle.”
