Construction Vehicle Strikes “Boat Bridge” Between Contemporary and Magic Kingdom

Construction Vehicle Strikes “Boat Bridge” Between Contemporary and Magic Kingdom

By Cassie

A truck holding a piece of Construction equipment was moving slowly in front of me, approaching the “Boat Bridge that connects the waterways of the Contemporary Resort and Magic Kingdom.  It is also used for boat transportation for the Wilderness Lodge, Fort Wilderness Campground, and Contemporary resort with Magic Kingdom.  The driver was hesitant as he approached, seemingly unsure if he could make it under the bridge.  However, when it struck it did do some damage to the overpass as small pieces of concrete fell on impact.   We are unsure how much damage the bridge may have sustained as yet.  There was a ferry boat that crossed over top of the bridge shortly after the vehicle struck it.

It will undoubtedly snarl up traffic as this is the main roadway for buses exiting Magic Kingdom for the other parks and resorts, with the exception of Contemporary.  There is not enough room for buses to turn around in this area as the cars did.  There was no arrival of security to help with the traffic in the first ten minutes prior to me turning around and going another way.  Going out of the property on World Drive I saw only one bus and it was heading toward the Magic Kingdom.

It appears this overpass may have been struck before as the concrete in this same area is a different shade than that around it.  Hopefully it will turn out to be minor damage.
