I have a question maybe someone could answer?
The Obama bridge (aka the new span S.S. Jolley bridge) is 2,440 feet long. It cost the American taxpayers $25.5 million dollars to build.
The Smokehouse Bay bridge is 80 feet long and will cost the resident taxpayers of Marco Island $11.5 million dollars to build.....
Let's do some simple math....
The final cost of the new span of the S.S. Jolley bridge came in at $9,221.00 per foot.
The proposed cost for the new Smokehouse Bay bridge at $11.5 million is $143,750 per foot!
That is $134,529 more per foot than the Jolley Bridge.....
