Project Details
Work Type New Bridge Construction
Phase Completed
Limits SR 60 (Courtney Campbell Causeway) west of Ben T. Davis Beach

This project was final accepted on July 3, 2019.

To improve the water circulation and quality in Old Tampa Bay and restore tidal flows to the northeast portion of the Bay, the Florida Department of Transportation constructed a new bridge on SR 60 (Courtney Campbell Causeway), west of Ben T. Davis Beach. No bridge previously existed in this section of the causeway. The design portion of this design-build project began in October 2017 and construction began in January 2018. SR 60 and the pedestrian/bicycle trail remained open for use during construction.

Both directions of traffic and the pedestrian trail were shifted to the northern portion of the new bridge in September 2018. The pedestrian trail was shifted to its final alignment on the southern portion of the bridge on March 23, 2019. Eastbound motor vehicle traffic was shifted to the south side of the bridge on April 2, 2019. 

North and south dam removal was completed on November 15, 2018 to allow full tidal flow through the new channel.

Eastbound SR 60 traffic has been shifted south (right side of photo) now that the bridge structure is nearing completion (April 2019 photo).
Most of the construction work has been completed, as shown in this late-April 2019 photo.

In this February 1, 2019 photo, you can see the new deck has been poured on the west side of the south portion of the new bridge.
The channel was fully opened on November 15, 2018 to allow water to flow under the bridge.
Temporary dams were removed to open the channel under the bridge (still under construction) November 13 through 15, 2018.
While work continues to build the southern portion of the new bridge, crews are also preparing the area to open the new channel.
Crews work on the south side of the Courtney Campbell Causeway building the portion of the bridge for future eastbound SR 60 traffic.
