Marco Island Smokehouse Creek Bridge Replacement Project






At the March 16th, 2020, City Council meeting, Council conducted a public hearing which reviewed the FDOT Inspection Reports and the project scope of work.  Council awarded a design contract to TY LIN, International to design a replacement bridge structure for the W. Winterberry Bridge, also known as the Smokehouse Creek Bridge. 


The purpose of the project is the replacement of a functionally obsolete bridge structure that was originally constructed in 1967 and carries a major arterial roadway over the Smokehouse Creek.  The structure has exceeded its 50-year design life and has a FDOT structural evaluation of 67 which is only slightly over the minimum tolerable.  This bridge is also on our internal hurricane evacuation routes.



FUNDING SOURCE / FISCAL IMPACT:  This legislative grant application is for $1,702,512.00 which is 47.6% of the total project cost.  Additional funding for the work is within the FY22  Capital Project “pay as you go” fund 3005410-606300-16025 which currently contains $3,560,265.00, therefore $1,872,763.00 would be our City match.



RECOMMENDATION:   Accept the submittal of the Marco Island Smokehouse Creek Bridge Replacement Project for consideration by the State Legislature for FY22 funding.
