Work continues to accelerate and initial benchmarks are being made on the new Belleair Causeway Bridge construction, which began on March 29, 2007. One milestone is currently under way: the state-of-the-art installation of the beams and bridge deck, a new process which represents an approximate savings of $250,000.
Since opening in 1950, the existing Belleair Causeway Bridges have served as a key access route to the 20-plus miles of pristine Pinellas County beaches. However, the antiquated bridges have reached their lifespan capacity and are due to be replaced. The new Belleair Causeway Bridge represents an extensive construction project and a multi-million dollar investment in local communities. It is funded, in part, through Penny for Pinellas dollars and is slated for completion in the spring of 2010.
