Little Harbor Bridge Replacement

Client: Mariner's Club
Location: Bahia Beach, Ruskin, FL
Size: Four Lane Bridge; $1.4 Million
Service: Public & Civic Infrastructure

Project involved replacement of an existing failing two lane bridge at the main entrance to a mixed-use development (marina, restaurant, resort and residences). As this was the only vehicular access to the development, full access had to be maintained at all times. Alternate access was not available as the development is surrounded by wetlands.

The bridge also carried all utilities (sewer, water, power, telephone and cable TV) to the property, which also needed to be accommodated. The new 4-lane bridge is actually two 2-lane bridges; one constructed on either side of the existing bridge allowing it to remain in service. The two new bridges were also equipped with new utilities so service would not be interrupted when the existing bridge and utilities were demolished.

To provide an entry “feature” and sense of “arrival”, once the existing bridge was gone, the gap was filled in between the new bridges, landscaping was installed and a faux guard house was erected. Decorative street lights were also installed along the outer edges of the now one new bridge.
