LT. Gov. Jennings and other key people present for the dedication ceremony.

The $71 million St. George Island bridge in Franklin County was officially opened and dedicated on Friday, February 27, 2004. Lt. Governor Toni Jennings was the keynote speaker for the event. The new bridge, which took over 3 years to construct, is 4.1 miles long, making it the third longest bridge in Florida.
