KEY WEST, FL – Monroe County’s $1.5 million repair project for the 177-foot Garrison Bight Bridge in Key West is expected to be completed by early January at the latest.

The project began on Aug. 20, 2017, and was interrupted by Hurricane Irma.

Completed work: roadway repairs and paving; repair and sealing of bridge deck and railings; restoration of spalled areas beneath the deck; and coating of existing structural steel.

Current work taking place:  installing structural pile jackets and a corrosion protection system, repairing the fender system and replacing navigational lighting. 

Intermittent nighttime lane closures will be required for additional sidewalk and asphalt repairs as well as roadway striping.

The project’s construction, engineering and inspection is primarily funded by a Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Small County Outreach Program (SCOP) grant. Monroe County is providing matching grant funds of $565,000 to the project.

The bridge originally was built in 1965.
