The New Pass Bridge signalization light is broken and will be repaired Monday, April 15, according to Florida Department of Transportation officials.
Vice Mayor David Brenner discovered the bridge light was out when he inquired about a state variable message sign still sitting in the right-of-way just south of the bridge — even though the Gulf of Mexico Drive paving project was completed weeks ago.
“Some of my constituents called me to complain about the sign, and I was told it’s staying in place until the light is repaired to get motorists to proceed with caution over the bridge,” Brenner said.
A paving contractor truck knocked the bridge light out a couple of weeks ago, and FDOT was waiting for a part to repair the light.
