Florida Gulf & Atlantic Railroad LLC (FGA) recently completed construction of a new rail bridge in Marianna, Florida.

The new open-timber bridge over Borden Street replaces an older structure. The project was completed over two months for a cost of $175,000 through a partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation and with support from the city of Marianna, FGA officials said in a press release.

The Borden Street rail bridge project is part of an eight-month, multimillion-dollar initiative to repair or replace 20 bridges along FGA's line. The investment in the newly created railroad reinforces the commitment of FGA and its parent, RailUSA LLC, to revitalize the line, FGA officials said.

FGA operates on 430 miles of track in the Florida Panhandle and southern Georgia. The railroad was created in 2019 when the line was purchased from CSX.
