The storm caused heavy damage to the 3-mile-long Sanibel Causeway, the only road connecting Sanibel Island to Florida’s mainland. Repairs on another, smaller bridge connecting Pine Island are already underway, according to a report from Politico. But so far, state Governor Ron DeSantis hasn’t announced any specific timeline for the Sanibel Causeway’s re-building.

“I can’t tell … exactly how long that’s going to take,” DeSantis said, according to Politico.
