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

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
Nope the old 3 mile bridge that was just replaced by the new 3 mile bridge.

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.

It will be put within this area as explained to me at the EMAC meeting this past Monday when I asked Robert about the progress. Robert is directly involved and indicated Skanska is meant to be doing this almost immediately... this particular area is listed in the reef area on the Escambia County website and available to all...

I'll text Robert mid morning to verify but I'm sure thats what he told me... it was a rather exhaustive meeting due to all the galvez landing discussions..



thx for the info, that area is 6 miles x 1.5 miles and it is going to be an insane amount of fish on it. The top portion runs right in the middle of the paradise hole. This way nobody can focus on one area and wipe them out, like a single reef ball/tug/barge, the reefs are so close together the fish can move around easy and avoid the noobs lol.

the gaps are placed where live bottom is known as there were restrictions regarding the reef placement..... the entire project has been described as the largest reefing project in the state of Florida...

Great idea on placement area. Now if they would just completly shut down flounder for October November and December for one or two years the depleted population would return like the Snapper population has. Just those 3 months during there spawning run.

I also hope when they put the sections down they dump pilings first and then put the sections on top of the pilings to create spaces and keeping the flat sections from sinking into the sand like the area a little SE of the Pattie Barge did after 6 years. And the old Casino.
