New Bridge Now Open On North Highway 99 In Oak Grove

June 21, 2018

Traffic has been shifted to a new North Highway 99 bridge over Pine Barren Creek, just north of the Oak Grove Park.

The new bridge with 11-foot travel lanes and nine-foot shoulders was built just west of the existing bridge, which was constructed in 1955. The old bridge will now be dismantled.

The $4.2 million Florida Department of Transportation  project is expected to be completed in a few weeks.

    Looking at that top pick, it looks like there’s a sharp curve right at the end of the bridge before it curves left. Hopefully they fix that.

    It’s not as sharp as it looks. Not near as sharp as the curve coming off I-10 spur going west bound, right there where the light pole has been torn down many times.

    Life keeps getting better and better…until it stops.
