Pensacola Bay Bridge Design - Build Project

Project Details

FDOT is constructing a replacement for the Pensacola Bay Bridge that carries US 98 (SR 30) traffic over the bay and connects the cities of Pensacola (in Escambia County) and Gulf Breeze (in Santa Rosa County). US 98 is a significant east-west transportation corridor in the region and is also primary hurricane evacuation route for the Northwest Florida coast.

When complete, the $434.8 million project will increase safety and improve traffic flow for the estimated 58,000 drivers who travel the bridge each day.
