The SR A1A North Causeway Bridge is a movable bridge located in St. Lucie County that was constructed in 1963. It spans over the Intracoastal Waterway (ICWW) connecting the barrier island to the mainland in the City of Fort Pierce. In March 2014 the bridge was structurally inspected and received ratings providing justification for replacement.

The purpose of this PD&E Study is to evaluate bridge replacement alternatives, which will
resolve the structurally deficient conditions of the existing bridge and enhance regional mobility for the area bound by this study.
