Client: FDOT District 3
Escambia to Santa Rosa County, Florida


Project Description:

In 2016, Eisman & Russo, Inc. were awarded the Construction Management & CEI services for the nearly $400M replacement of the Pensacola Bay Bridge from Escambia to Santa Rosa County, Florida. E&R provided Construction Management & CEI services for this estimated 3.5-year Design-Build project, which involved constructing two independent SR 30 (US 98) bridge structures across Pensacola Bay and replacing the existing 3-mile long, structurally deficient Pensacola Bay Bridge. Additionally, US 98 was widened from 2- to 3-lanes in each direction on both approaches for a total project length of 3.721 miles. The former Pensacola Bay Bridge was 2-lanes in each direction with a 6’ hard shoulder on one side and virtually no shoulder on the other. It was replaced with two separate structures, each consisting of three 12’ lanes with a 10’ inside and outside shoulder and a 10’ wide shared use path on the outside of each new bridge structure. Additionally, an aesthetic lighting scheme was incorporated to accentuate the new bridges. The existing bridge was demolished as part of the project. The new Pensacola Bay Bridge replaced the original bridge built in 1960 and ensures that this east-west transportation corridor, which serves as a primary hurricane evacuation route for the Florida Panhandle, is in an operationally safe condition for the travelling public.
