Beaver Street Improvement Project

The $9.2 million Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Beaver Street improvement project in Jacksonville began in August and is scheduled to be complete in spring 2017.

The project includes resurfacing and pavement reconstruction, replacement of sidewalks on both sides of the street and widening travel lanes from 10 to 11 feet along one mile of roadway from McDuff Avenue to Stockton Street.

To improve drainage along the route, drainage pipes will be replaced under the road and one existing retention pond will be upgraded.  An additional retention pond will be built at the corner of Carrie and Beaver streets.

The first phase of the project includes reduced travel lanes on Beaver Street from McDuff Avenue to Stockton Street. Beaver Street is reduced to a single lane in each direction and will be in effect 24-hours-a-day, seven days a week to allow for work on the north side of the street.

J.B. Coxwell Contracting, Inc. of Jacksonville is the contractor.

Travelers through this area may experience lane closures and construction delays.  Please be cautious.

FDOT welcomes your thoughts about this project as we work on your behalf to help ensure a safe and efficient state roadways.
