This project provides modifications to existing roadway infrastructure within the Brooklyn Neighborhood to enhance pedestrian and bicycle connectivity and improve vehicular safety. Improvements include adding a cycle track (2-way bicycle traffic), on street parking, expanded sidewalk areas, reduced roadway widths for safer pedestrian crossings and the addition of street trees. The design intent for Park Street will provide a more multi-modal street within the urban core linking LaVilla and the Regional Transportation Center with the Five Points and Riverside neighborhoods. Enhanced pedestrian experiences will also promote economic development along the corridor. This project will connect Park Street to the Emerald Trail Model Project as well as McCoys Creek Greenway.
Riverplace Boulevard has recently been reconstructed to narrow the travel lanes, provide on-street parking, accommodate pedestrians and bicycles and provide landscaping. The project included roadwork, drainage, signalization, landscaping, roadway lighting, bus stop modifications, water and sewer utility modifications and signage.
Twenty-five years and $57.3 million in the making, the Jacksonville Regional Transportation opened its doors in March 2020. Phase one, a 10,000-square foot Intercity Bus Terminal, featuring Greyhound and MegaBus, opened in spring of 2018. Phase two will complete an impressive new multimodal station for all public transit in the region, integrating a 40,000-square-foot JTA bus transfer facility, the First Coast Flyer Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), Skyway/U2C, rideshare and bike share – all in one transit hub.
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) began January 14, 2013 to replace the series of overpasses that carry traffic over Hendricks, Kings and Montana avenues along 2.3 miles of I-95 near downtown Jacksonville in Duval County. Known as the Overland Bridge project, it will improve traffic flow along the I-95 corridor just south of the Fuller Warren Bridge. I-95 will be widened to provide an additional lane for southbound traffic. As the project is built, traffic will use parallel roadways, which upon completion of the I-95 bridge structures, will remain and provide additional capacity for traffic between the Fuller Warren Bridge and north of Emerson Street.
The Isaiah David Hart Bridge is a truss bridge that spans the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida. It carries U.S. Route 1 Alternate and State Road 228. It is named after Isaiah Hart, the founder of Jacksonville. It was designed by Sverdrup & Parcel.
The ramp is currently under construction but the bridge is open during construction.
The Fuller Warren Bridge is a prestressed concrete girder bridge that carries Interstate 95 (I-95) across the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida. The Florida Department of Transportation is currently constructing a $126 million project to add traffic lanes and a shared-use path to the bridge for pedestrians and bicyclists connecting San Marco and Riverside neighborhoods.
The 12-foot-wide pathway for pedestrians and cyclists will be on the south side of the bridge, separated from traffic by a fence. The railing will have artistic features developed with input from Riverside Avondale Preservation and the Cummer Museum of Art and Gardens.
The bridge is available for using during construction and will have lane closures through the end of construction.

The St. Elmo W. Acosta Bridge spans the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida on a fixed span.
LED lights that can be programmed in any color (with the option for multiple color combinations) were recently installed on the Acosta Bridge, replacing neon tubes installed 20-plus years ago. The new LED lights can be changed for special events, like holidays and Jaguar games!
The new LED system cost $2.6 million and was installed by Miller Electric.
