The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is scheduled to begin the replacement of two bridges in Cedar Key next month, weather permitting.
Ahead of the bridge replacements at Daughtry Bayou on Airport Road and Lewis Pass on Gulf Boulevard, FDOT will host an Open House on August 29 for residents who may have questions about the project.
Replacement of the two bridges is scheduled to begin in early September. Temporary bridges will be installed to maintain access while the old bridges are removed and new bridges are constructed.
FDOT has hired Anderson Columbia Co., Inc., of Lake City, to complete the $7.8 million project.
Replacement of both bridges is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018.
FDOT has scheduled a construction Open House ahead of the start of the project and is scheduled to take place from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on August 29 at the Cedar Key Community Center (809 6th Street). Staff will be on hand to answer questions and provide maps and flyers to residents seeking more information.
