Video: Here’s How Traffic Will Flow On When The Pensacola Bay Bridge Opens

May 26, 2021

The Florida Department of Transportation has created an animation to show motorists what to expect when the Pensacola Bay Bridge opens to traffic. The video is meant to assist motorists in preparing for the traffic alignment on the bridge and instruct motorists traveling into Pensacola on how to navigate the 17th Avenue Flyover.

The bridge, expected to open by next week, will be two lanes for less than a mile on the Pensacola end and four lanes for remainder.

    Did they vote against putting a roundabout in the middle of it?

    I have already sent a copy of this video to the Academy Awards selection committee for Oscar consideration in the “Comedy Short Film” category. That was one of the best laughs I have gotten in a while. It will look nothing, and I mean nothing, like that in real life. Everyone driving right where they should. No middle finger salutes, no road rage, no drunks running over barriers, no one going the wrong way. Someone should do a drone shot of the same spots and then do a video comparison flipping between the two.

    I think Skanska was doing a great job until the hurricane. Take a look at 9 mile road , started in 2016 if you want to see unbelievable slow progress. Had not been for the hurricane they would have built a 3 mile bridge over water half the time Roads inc have had for nine mile rd.

    Whoever hired Skanska to build this bridge should be removed from office. This project has been a joke from Day 1.
