Garcon Point Bridge Toll Suspension Extended Again

January 12, 2021

The toll suspension on the Garcon Point bridge has been extended through February 11, 2021, the Florida Department of Transportation announced Tuesday morning.

“The extension allows the Garcon Point Bridge to continue serving as a temporary detour route while the Pensacola Bay Bridge is being repaired from damage sustained during Hurricane Sally,” FDOT said in a news release.

FDOT has said they expect the Pensacola Bay Bridge to reopen sometime in March.

    A Alex. Want to pay the tolls for people forced to used the bridge twice a day for work? $80 a month.

    PcolaWinger. Are you trying to get Skanska to go bankrupt? Good luck getting the bridge finished in a reasonable time when the company dies.

    I still dont see why we needed a new bridge. It was a busy work project just to pad peoples wallets. The funds for fixing the storm damage and other costs should have come from FEMA funding.

    A Alex How can you even think like that? The greed is sickening. We shouldn’t have to pay to use critical infrastructures.

    Skanska should be forced to reimburse the holding company the toll fees for every vehicle that has crossed the bridge since the hurricane…they shouldn’t be made to suffer due to the negligence of others…

    How about putting the toll collectors back on and collect flat fee $2 each vehicle. Stop giving out freebies in this country

    Why don”t they just say the toll will be suspended until the 3 mile bridge is open?
