    It was (partially) funded by the U.S. DOT.

    ok, but not still a full on FL-DOT project? wasn't it more of a private project paid by the school (university???)

    Not sure what Florida's financial involvement (if any) is. I would assume they have a certain amount of oversight at least. The Feds gave the university engineering program that is involved $11.4 - $12.4 million. I don't know if it was all for this project, or their engineering program in general. Nor have I seen a figure for the total cost of the project, but I am certain that's readily available.

    Can't build a simple pedestrian bridge but I'm sure they can pull off autonomous vehicles

    I guess, to be fair, that looks like an unusually long span to not have a center column support. And obviously their design concept needed more work.
