New Bridge Street Streetscape Project
The New Bridge Street infrastructure and streetscape improvement project
Your City is working to make Jacksonville a better place to work, live and play. The New Bridge Street infrastructure and streetscape improvements will include a variety of improvements; water, stormwater, sidewalks, street lighting, landscaping, medians, delivery areas, and removing overhead power. The goal of this project is to improve infrastructure, reduce flooding, and achieve a beautiful corridor where neighborhood businesses can thrive and people feel welcomed. Expected completion date in September, 2024.
City crews are working to minimize impact to downtown businesses. Customers will have continued access to local businesses and only partial lane closures are expected. Photo: 2023 image pre-construction of New Bridge Street
Completed: Summer, 2023
- Contractor finished cleaning up New Bridge Street
- Traffic control to the opposite side of road from Warlick Street (in front of Charles Riggs office) to Huerth Street
- Crews tested the new water main.
- Stop signs will have been installed in the area of New Bridge Street and Bayshore Boulevard. The intersection will function as an all-way stop. (New traffic signals will be installed near the end of the project.)
Construction and Road Lane Closures
The City will closely coordinate construction activity with business and property owners along New Bridge Street. The construction activity will require the temporary closure of lanes, sidewalks, or other public spaces to facilitate construction. Drivers can expect lane closures and lane shifts during construction. Pedestrians may experience detours or some temporary closed crossings.
We understand this will create challenges and frustrations for owners, motorists, and pedestrians. The City and the contractor are committed to working together to complete this project.
Noise and Activity
As we work to make significant improvements to New Bridge Street, there will be some short-term impacts. These include:
- Lane closures
- Gravel patches
- Parking challenges
- Pedestrian routes
