SANTA ROSA COUNTY, Fla. — A section of the Three Mile Bridge in Pensacola is missing after Hurricane Sally made its way through the Gulf Wednesday morning.

WEAR TV reports that Sen. Doug Broxson will hold a call Wednesday night with Santa Rosa County Emergency Management about the damage.

A request for FDOT to be included in the call will be made, Broxson says.

Broxson also stated they are also looking to request from FEMA to reimburse the cost of the damage, according to WEAR.

The bridge connects Pensacola to Gulf Breeze on U.S. 98.

The damage comes after a barge with a crane hit the bridge, closing it down on Tuesday.
