j07 BRIDGE IS FLORIDA'S LARGEST PUBLIC WORKS By HAMPTON DUNN ST. PETERSBURG --Once upon a time, a rickety old ferry plodded between St. Petersburg and Palmetto. Years of discussion about the need for a bridge between the two points finally brought action a nd in 1954 a giant span was opened and dedicated. The Sunshine Skyway is the largest public works project ever built by the State of Florida. The original two lane structure is getting a twin as another two lanes are added and due to open in 1969. Talk o f a bridge link between Pinellas and Manatee goes back to 1912. The first actual link between the areas came with the start of the Bee Line Ferry in 1924. A $7 million high level bridge was approved by the government in 1926, but area wide political squabb les stalled it. Finally, during the administration of Gov. Fuller Warren, Sunshine Skyway --an ultra modern, high level bridge, so high ocean going steamships pass underneath it --was started. The first structure cost $22,000,000 and the additional two la nes in a parallel bridge will cost about $25,000,000. The high level bridge is over four miles long, rises 15 stories above water (250 feet). The central span rises on a five per cent grade from trestle approaches 21 feet above water. The causeway offers t en miles of beach recreational facilities and there are catwalks for fishing on four small bridges in the system.
