Are you talking about the remains of the 3 mile bridge that are now fishing piers ? If so removing the one on the P-Cola side is going to have some people up set

Man that would be freaking awesome! Knowing our local government, they'll sink it 30miles offshore. Or send it somewhere else.

Thank you, shows just how much I get out

That would make a dandy reef, ecpically if they did some planing, and not just
dump everything

If one of ya'll see the bridge rubble barge headed out, keep an eye out to see where it is going. My money is on the area between the Paradise hole and The Ocean Wind Tug where they just put all those limestone reefs. But who knows. Adding to the three barges would be nice too.

not sure of the exact location, but it will be removed in complete spans and dropped along our coast. Should provide great structure for reef fish. The tilt barges that were built for this project can handle 2 sections at a time.

I counted 266 sections per side. so 532 sections!!! That is a lot of reefs not to mention the pilings!!!!!! People were honking their horns mad as hell about me going slow counting but I got it done just for you guys.
