OFFICIALS SAY PARTS OF THE INTERSTATE-10 BRIDGE THAT SPANS THROUGH ESCAMBIA BAY IN THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE IS GOING TO BE SUNK AS AN ARTIFICIAL REEF.
THE BRIDGE WAS DESTROYED DURING HURRICANE IVAN IN SEPTEMBER OF 2004 WITH PIECES OF THE STRUCTURE RIPPED AWAY BY THE WATER.
AND NOW THAT A WIDER, TALLER, 243 MILLION DOLLAR BRIDGE IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION, OFFICIALS SAY THE OLD BRIDGE IS READY TO BECOME PART OF THE "LARGE AREA ARTIFICIAL REEF SITE."
THE PERMITTED REEF SITE ENCOMPASSES ABOUT 125 SQUARE MILES IN THE GULF OF MEXICO, ABOUT 20 MILES SOUTH OF PENSACOLA.
