In late April, crews at the $434-million Pensacola Bay Bridge project completed driving the last of 2,252 piles needed for the nearly 3-mile-long structure, the Florida Dept. of Transportation announced. The piles, measuring from 60 ft to 210 ft long and weighing between 54,000 lb and 189,000 lb, were driven to depths ranging from 60 ft to 180 ft, says the agency. Previously scheduled for completion in 2021, the bridge project was delayed in September 2020 after construction barges broke loose during Hurricane Sally, inflicting severe damage to the structure and requiring reconstruction of multiple spans. FDOT now targets completion in late 2022.
