Design and construct a new subaqueous potable water main underneath East Bay at Dupont Bridge. The existing water main was installed on the bridge structure in 1966 and supplies all potable water to Tyndall Air Force Base and Mexico Beach.
The proposed subaqueous water main will ensure the delivery of potable water and the viability of Tyndall AFB and Mexico Beach. Reduce the potential negative traffic impacts to the Dupont Bridge, which is the only connection from Tyndall/Mexico Beach to Bay County and visa versa. Tyndall AFB is a major economic driver for Bay County and has committed to spend $3B to rebuild the base as one of the most advanced and premier military bases in the country. Ensuring the delivery of sufficient quantity and quality of potable water is critical to maintaining the viability of the Tyndall AFB.
