FORT PIERCE, Fla. — The Florida Department of Transportation is holding a virtual public meeting Wednesday evening on improving a bridge in Fort Pierce.
Officials are discussing their plans to replace the State Road A1A Causeway over the Intracoastal Waterway.
FDOT said the existing two-lane 2,100-foot long bridge was constructed in 1963 and is set to be replaced due to structural deficiencies.
The new bridge will have bicycle lanes and an 85-foot vertical clearance for boaters.
Crews expect to start the project in early 2022 and be completed in January 2026 at a cost of $79 million.
Wednesday's virtual event, which will include a brief presentation followed by a question and comment session, will be held from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
