Nason Yeager Applauds Port St. Lucie’s Grand Opening of the Crosstown Bridge Project
As special counsel to the city of Port St. Lucie, Nason Yeager Gerson Harris & Fumero, was excited to sponsor the grand opening of the Crosstown Parkway Extension. The project, which is over 30 years in the making, opened to the public on Saturday, September 28 following a celebration with residents and city leaders.
The project provides a new bridge crossing over a portion of the St. Lucie River, connecting the existing Crosstown Parkway from Manth Lane to U.S. 1 Highway at Village Green Drive. The project is approximately two miles long with a 4,000 foot bridge. The six-lane highway and bridge includes space for vehicle, bicycle, pedestrian and public transit. The project will help alleviate traffic congestion and help improve public safety and emergency response times while reducing travel times for residents and visitors.
Attorneys John Fumero and Gregory Hyden served as counsel to the city in obtaining and defending a number of federal and state permits authorizing construction of the bridge. Fumero represented the city in a formal administrative proceeding that resulted in a victory for the city and issuance of a state permit needed to move forward with construction.
Construction began in 2017. The project was built using local, state and federal funds. All pictures courtesy of the Crosstown Parkway Extension website.
