North End Sidewalk Project

GIBA Awards Southern Roadway Sidewalk Project to EHC Inc. August 25th 2020

The Gasparilla Island Bridge Authority is excited to announce the award of the Southern Roadway Sidewalk contract to EHC Inc. of Naples, FL.  The plans were designed by Giffels Webster Engineers of Englewood, Florida and the project consists of constructing paved roadway shoulders, and concrete curb & sidewalks on the GIBA-Owned portion of Gasparilla Road from Gulf Shore Drive (north) to a crosswalk 600-foot north of Gulf Shore Drive (south) connecting to the GICIA golf card path on Boca Grande in Charlotte County. 

The GIBA Board and staff have been working behind the scenes for more than two years preparing for this project and are thrilled that construction is set to begin.  The project start date is expected to begin in September 2020 and weather permitting, complete by the end of December 2020. 

Over the next few months causeway travelers can expect delays in the construction area.  There will be one lane traffic necessary during active construction hours Monday-Friday 7am to 5pm. Workmen will be present, and the speed limit will be strictly enforced.
