Escambia Bay Bridge Construction

On September 16, 2004 the storm surge from Hurricane Ivan nearly destroyed both sections of the Interstate 10 Escambia Bay Bridge outside Pensacola, Florida. Temporary repairs were made and limited traffic was permitted. Both sections of the bridge are now being destroyed and the new west-bound lanes are taking shape.

Here are some webcam photos to show the progress. You can visit the bridge's official site here. I will post more photos as the construction progresses.

In case you are confused by the pictures, the new west-bound lanes will be approximately where the old east-bound lanes were.
