Two WPA-era bridges get new life in Polk County

Two “New Deal” era bridges built in 1940s rural Florida were replaced by new, up-to-date structures. The 74-year-old South Lake Reedy Blvd. and Old Bartow Lake Wales Road Bridges in Polk County, Florida were “functionally obsolete” by today’s standards. Polk County’s Transportation Division delivered both new bridges ahead of schedule and under budget.
