The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has announced that work to replace the Marquis Bayou Bridge on U.S. Highway 90 should begin sometime this month.

The bridge, which helps to connect Milton with East Milton, will be constructed in two primary phases.

Phase I:

This will involve the construction of a temporary metal bridge south of the current Marquis Bayou Bridge. Traffic is expected to be transitioned to the temporary metal bridge by the end of this year. The Speed limit on the temporary bridge will be reduced to 30 miles per hour.

Phase II:

Once To help minimize traffic impacts, lane closures on U.S. Highway 90 will be limited to 9 p.m. to 6 a.m., when travel demand is the lowest.the temporary bridge is in place, the construction team will focus on the demolition of the current bridge and construction of the new structure. The works is currently scheduled for completion in the spring of 2015.

The new bridge, once completed, will feature 12-foot travel lanes, a five-foot sidewalk on the south side of the bridge, and a 12-foot shared bicycle/pedestrian path on the north side.
