As President Trump addressed the nation last night, Okaloosa County was focused on one thing:
The closing of the Mid-Bay Bridge! 😩
If you travel using the Mid-Bay Bridge and this is your first time hearing of the closure, I’m terribly sorry for ruining your morning.
According to Okaloosa County officials, the Mid-Bay Bridge has been closed effective immediately due to emergency repairs and commuters should see alternative routes.
Post-tensioning tendons are one of the internal support systems placed inside the bridge. There are multiple tendons in each span of the Mid-Bay Bridge.
The bridge will open to traffic once repairs are complete. However, no estimated completion time was given.

Are you affected by this closing? Thoughts on the abrupt shutdown of the bridge?
