The award goes to the transportation project voted the best, by on-line voters. The A. Max Brewer Bridge received 331,198 votes out of more than 710,000 in the national competition.

It was a tight race between the A. Max Brewer Bridge, Florida’s entry, and California’s entry, the I-405/Sepulveda Pass Project – Mulholland Bridge Demolition; or "Carmageddon" as it became known. In addition to Florida and California, eight other states were competing as well. The winner receives a $10,000 prize, which goes to the state agency’s charity of choice, plus bragging rights of being number one. Local leaders also look to the Max Brewer Bridge to enhance renewal efforts in Titusville and northern Brevard County.

 

The on-line voting took on a life of its own; going viral. Government partners, such as Brevard County and the City of Titusville, as well as private firms such as Lane Construction Corporation, which built the bridge, played a vital part. The Florida Department of Transportation’s social media efforts also played a critical role.

 

The Florida Department of Transportation works diligently every day to build and maintain safe and high quality highways and bridges, such as the A. Max Brewer Bridge. Also, please do your part by being safe; buckle up and don’t text and drive.

 

According to research done by the North Brevard Historical Society, Albert "Max" Brewer was a Titusville attorney in the 1950s and succeeded William Akridge as State Representative from Brevard County. In 1961 Gov. Bryant appointed Brewer to the State Road Board. In 1966 Brewer was killed when his private plane crashed. In 1983 a swing span bridge was renamed the A. Max Brewer Bridge in his honor. The swing span was replaced by the new bridge above.
