New Smyrna Beach, FL – Residents will soon have the opportunity to voice their opinions about the replacement of the Barracuda Bridge across the Canal Brandano waterway in New Smyrna Beach.

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is hosting a public information meeting about the project from 5 to 7 PM on Tuesday, December 5. The meeting will be held in the Commission Chambers at the City of New Smyrna Beach City Hall, located at 210 Sams Avenue.
