FDOT to unveil pedestrian bridge design.

State officials will present the design for a pedestrian bridge over U.S.1 at an Islamorada Village Council meeting next week.

Vice Mayor Deb Gillis expects a light attendance at the Tuesday, July 10 meeting because the village has been discussing the pedestrian bridge for more than a year. 

“I think they are going to have design pictures and I am hoping they will have road plans to show the bridge will incorporate into the existing asphalt trail,” she told the Weekly.

The $2.5 million project is expected to begin in November 2019 and will last approximately 12 months.

The meeting will take place at the Founders Park Community Center from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
