Project Details

Work has begun on State Road 4 to replace the bridge over Blackwater River, four miles west of County Road 189N, in Okaloosa County. The $10.2 million bridge replacement project will also include new roadway approaches, drainage improvements, and concrete barrier wall. Traffic will be maintained on the existing bridge as the new structure is built on a new alignment to the south of the current structure.

A temporary work bridge will be built to facilitate construction of the new structure.
