Bay Bridge Comments

The state has determined that the Pensacola Bay Bridge needs to be replaced. It is several years off, but they are starting the planning now. They are requesting comments from the public on any priorities that should be considered. Anyone with suggestions should access the Efficient Transportation Decision Making (ETDM) Web site. On that site, you can search for the bay bridge project, and there is a link for submitting comments.

Examples of the topics that some people have commented on include:
  • Bike lanes
  • Sidewalks
  • Break down lanes
  • Toll lanes/HOV lanes
  • 6 lanes, 8 lanes, 4 lanes
  • West side landing, east side landing
  • Pretty lights
  • Road Rangers Services
Please share your opinions on the proposed project so that we can try and make it a bridge that will meet the community's needs for many years to come.
