A pavement road project is underway in Jacksonville.
The College Street Rehabilitation Project runs from Bayshore Boulevard to Railroad Street.
The project will include a four-way intersection stop on Warlick and College Street.
A stop sign will be added on West Bayshore Boulevard and the sign on College Street will be removed.
A 90-degree stop condition is also being constructed on West and East Bayshore Boulevard which is expected to be safer.
“The field of vision when traveling through these intersections was very inhibited so this project came to be,” said Andrew Kassell, project manager in the Public Service Department for the City of Jacksonville.
A section of West Bayshore Boulevard will be closed to expand a rain garden to treat stormwater.
“The bayshore area has a very poor drainage area because it’s so flat and the exisiting infrastructure. So there’s, what they call, rain gardens, which helps filter the storm water off from the roadway,” said
Several road closures are in place until the project is complete.
It is anticipated to be done in the next two to three weeks.
