Bridge repair starts today

Repairts on the New Pass Bridge signalization light will begin today, Florida Department of Transportation officials said.

The repair could take a couple of days to fix and isn’t expected to create traffic delays.

Vice Mayor David Brenner discovered the bridge light was out when he inquired about a state variable message sign was still sitting in the right-of-way even though the Gulf of Mexico Drive paving project was completed weeks ago.

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.

The sign, according to FDOT officials, will be removed in two weeks.
