Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is showing elected officials across the country what true leadership looks like.

In just three days, the construction of the Pine Island Bridge — damaged during the hurricane — has already been repaired so that emergency responders and the general public can reach the island.

This was two days ahead of schedule.

Politico reported: 

The state of Florida reconnected a key bridge decimated by Hurricane Ian that cut off mainland road access for thousands of residents, but fixing a second damaged bridge system to reconnect another barrier island could take weeks longer even for a temporary solution.

Both bridges are in Lee County in Southwest Florida, which took a direct hit from the storm. The Florida Department of Transportation completed a temporary land bridge to Pine Island on Wednesday, two days ahead of schedule. Emergency responders will be able use the bridge as of Wednesday afternoon, with the general public to follow a few hours later.

Ian washed out the approach to the Matlacha Pass Bridge, a the only connection from Pine Island to the mainland. Dump trucks filled the flooded and damaged roadway with sand and gravel to allow vehicle access.

Here’s what it looked like just after the hurricane:

Many are pointing out that this could not have been done in a blue state with this speed.

Christina Pushaw said that another bridge in Florida is also being worked on and should have a temporary bridge by the end of the month.

Republicans get stuff done.
