About

On this project, the current Indian River Bridge over the NASA Causeway will be replaced to support future growth and improve public and commercial mobility, including for transportation of oversized vehicles to launch sites. The design plans include replacing the existing twin bascule bridges constructed in 1964 with new twin high-level bridges.

This bridge is being reconstructed under a partnership between the FDOT, NASA, and Space Florida. The State of Florida secured a $90 million Infrastructure For Rebuilding America (INFRA) Grant from USDOT. The grant will help to provide part of the funding needs for this bridge project as well as the widening of Space Commerce Way.
