Description

  • Florida Secretary of Transportation Walter Revell announces the invention of another transportation marvel, Florida's Remote Control Bridge near the Kennedy Space Center. It is the only bridge in the country that is operated via remote control by an off-site operator. He addresses plans to expand Florida's remote controlled bridge system to 12 in the approaching years. The narrator explains why remote control operation is safer and more cost effective than on-site controls. The camera captures the action as the bridge is tested and the operator follows each step on a lighted control board to ensure proper operation. Produced by WFSU-TV and the Florida Department of Transportation.
