A resurfacing and improvement project on approximately one mile of Emerson Street (State Road 126) from Spring Park Road to the Hart Expressway started the week of June 20.
The $1.7 million project includes resurfacing, curb and gutter improvements, pedestrian signal upgrades, including pedestrian countdown timers, and sidewalk replacement. The project also includes resurfacing the Emerson Street on-ramp from Beach Boulevard (Taunton Road), and the Hart Expressway off-ramp to Beach Boulevard (Wilson Avenue). In conjunction with the project, JEA’s water main pipe will be replaced from Spring Park Road to north of Emerson Street at the northwest corner of the Hart Expressway.
The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) project is scheduled to be complete in spring 2017. The contractor is Duval Asphalt Products, Inc. of Jacksonville.
Construction will occur weekdays, with no lane closures allowed from 6 to 9 a.m. or from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday. Nightly detours will be scheduled for the ramp resurfacing and a traffic shift will be in place during the water main work.
