This collaboration with the Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA), City, North Florida TPO, JEA and JAX Chamber will create a national model for the deployment of autonomous vehicles. The existing Skyway will be converted and smart technologies such as dynamic signals, connected intersections, integrated data exchange, pedestrian sensors, flood warning sensors and power consumption reduction will be installed. In August 2021, JTA selected Balfour Beatty Vision 2 Reality (V2R) team to deliver the Bay Street Innovation Corridor project on behalf of the JTA.
Investment: $379 Million
This project remediated the Liberty St Bridge, the Coastline Drive Bridge, the former county courthouse parking deck and part of the Northbank Riverwalk.
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 better support new investment and diverse community needs. The new street eliminates two automobile lanes in favor of enhanced pedestrian amenities, protected bicycle lanes, improved on-street parking and low impact design (LID) stormwater raingardens. The plan also includes enhanced bus transit and service from JTA, and utility enhancements completed with JEA.
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 add a new shared-use path to the bridge for pedestrians and bicyclists connecting San Marco and Riverside neighborhoods. The 12-foot-wide shared-use path 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 shared-use path opened April 2023.
The St. Elmo W. Acosta Bridge spans the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, Florida on a fixed span. It is named for City Councilman St. Elmo W. Acosta, who convinced voters to approve a $950,000 bond issue for the original bridge at the site. It carries a total of six lanes of SR 13 with the two-track Jacksonville Skyway in the median and sidewalks on the outside.
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 LED system cost $2.6 million and was installed by Miller Electric.
