State Road 789 at New Pass Bridge RoadWatch Advisory

 

 

SR 789 at New Pass Bridge: Construction project: Crews are updating the Bridge Tender house, electrical and mechanical components, and traffic gates on New Pass Bridge. Sidewalk improvements are included as well.

 

As part of ongoing construction and to test the new electrical and mechanical components, the contractor is required to open the bridge four times per day. In an effort to minimize impacts to the public, the contractor will complete the required daily four openings between 6:30 a.m. and 8 a.m. Monday through Sunday beginning Tuesday, March 21.

 

If the required number of openings cannot be obtained during this time period the contractor will use openings during the day during normal boat traffic.  The testing period is expected to last through mid-May. Moving forward we will make every effort to plan all coastal bridge projects start dates to avoid peak tourist season.

 

Construction of this $2 million project began in late August and is expected to be complete in late spring 2017. Quinn Construction is the contractor.
