  • Cedar Key will get one bridge replacement

    Cedar Key has been to this place before and been disappointed. There are three bridges that many folks want repaired.
    In 2009 they thought they would be, but state officials said contracts for the replacement were issued in error.
    The state tried to make up for it by saying it would repair what ailed the two bridges leading to George Lewis Airport and on C Street leading to the Dock Street commercial area.
