MANATEE COUNTY, FL (WWSB)- Roads & Bridges magazine is recognizing the Fort Hamer Bridge in their Top 10 North American Projects list; the bridge came in at number 7.

According to the magazine, the "top 10 list is based on project challenges, impact to region and scope of work."

The bridge is being recognized, in part, because of its ability to stay on schedule even after Hurricane Irma. 

The two-lane bridge opened in October 2017 with paved bike lanes and a pedestrian overlook.
