Flagler Memorial Bridge
Palm Beach, Florida
The Flagler Memorial Bridge is the connecting point for the City of West Palm Beach and the Town of Palm Beach, two distinctly different South Florida communities. The bascule bridge serves as the replacement for a 1938 structure and spans 2,400 feet over the Intracoastal Waterway. Numerous meetings took place between the design team and community to establish the new bridge location, height and architectural style. A design criteria package was developed and the project was advertised for FDOT as a design build project.
