FDOT's plan for 3 Mile Bridge

There's a new plan for the 3-Mile Bridge and today the Transportation Department plans to go over it with a project advisory group.
   
FDOT and local leaders have been working on a plan to replace the 53 year old bridge since 2011.
   
After considering  public input and impact studies, they have chosen a  "preferred corridor" that's pretty close to the current route.

The Transportation Department will go over the plan with members of the project advisory group at 5 pm.

A public hearing is scheduled for June 10th at the Crowne Plaza Grand Hotel in Pensacola. From 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm staff members will be available to answer questions and take comments.
   
Construction of the new bridge is expected to begin in 2017.
