FL: Mathews Bridge Impact & Emergency Response Project

Florida DOT’s $3.8 million Mathews Bridge Impact and Emergency Repair Project required a fast and efficient fix for a major Jacksonville crossing that was struck by a naval ship, causing enough damage to immediately close the structure. The project team used innovative construction and design methods to have the bridge open for traffic 12 days ahead of schedule and only 33 days after impact. The early opening reduced the economic hardship to the area created by the bridge closure and restored a link used by 56,000 vehicles every day.

  1. This was an amazing repair to an impacted tension member. The work was done while securing a potentially catastrophic failure. A job well done to all companies and individuals involved to get the Mathews Bridge back open in a relatively very short amount of time.
