Crews from the FDOT and the Okaloosa County Water and Sewer Department worked throughout the night making repairs to the bridge and the water pipe.

The crash that caused all the damage occurred at 3:15 p.m. as the tugboat Miss Lizzy was pushing four barges two-by-two east in Santa Rosa Sound, according to officials at Coast Guard Station Destin. The crane on one of the barges hit the bridge.
