Gov. Rick Scott announced Wednesday that the state will spend $90 million to further hydrate the Everglades

During a stop in Fort Myers, Scott discussed a plan to construct a 2.6-mile bridge on Tamiami Trail in Miami-Dade County. A similar 1-mile bridge opened in March on that stretch. The bridges replace the existing roadway, which has blocked the flow of water to the southern Everglades from Lake Okeechobee since its construction in 1928. When the project is completed, an annual average of 210,000 acre-feet of water will be redirected. [email protected] 16:10
