Interstate 10 Bridge to Pensacola Closed

Hurricane Ivan damaged Escambia BridgeThe Escambia Bay Bridge on Interstate 10 is closed to traffic in both directions due to structural damage received from Hurricane Ivan. Reports indicate that east and westbound spans on both ends of the bridge connecting Escambia and Santa Rosa counties have suffered severe damage and are impassable.

The US 90 bridge that parallels Interstate 10 is also closed due to damage to a relief bridge. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is currently assessing damage to both bridges and working on a detour route for Interstate 10 traffic.

US 98 south through Gulf Breeze has also suffered major road damage.
