Dock street bridge to go up 3 feet

Cedar Key, your voice has been heard.

The Florida Department of Transportation engineers have figured out a way to make the Dock/C Street bridge, one of three to be replaced, 3 feet higher than the current bridge and to install a temporary bridge during demolition and construction so businesses on Dock Street don't suffer a loss of business.

And the good news is that the plan for construction of the $4.6 million structure will begin in Fiscal Year 2019 that begins on July 1, 2018, instead of the previously mentioned FY 2021.
