The contract is valued at SEK 580 M (USD 76.8 M). The contract amount is included in order bookings for the second quarter of 2004. The customer is the Florida Department of Transportation. The contract covers construction of a new bridge to replace the 445-meter Bridge of Lions and to construct a temporary bridge 670 meters long for use during the construction period. The Bridge of Lions spanning the Matanzas River connects downtown St. Augustine with Anastasia Island, south of Jacksonville. The characteristic steel arched beams of the 76-year-old bridge will be reused in the new bridge.
