Overland Bridge construction to shift traffic patterns

Traffic Shift Map

Drivers who regularly traverse I-95 through the ongoing Overland Bridge construction, one that serves to complete a large portion of the Better Jacksonville Plan, will see a notable shift on their route. As progress continues, the Florida Department of Transportation wants to make drivers aware of shifts in traffic patterns.

A major traffic shift on the I-95 Overland Bridge project is coming up the weekend of January 8-10 which will result in northbound traffic moving to new lanes, detours for Atlantic Boulevard and Philips Highway motorists and temporary closure of Main Street and Acosta ramps.

The tentative schedule, subject to change, is as follows:

Friday, January 8 – Main Street/Prudential Drive and Acosta ramps closed in the evening hours and Atlantic Boulevard and Philips Highway on-ramps closed with traffic detoured (see attached map).

Saturday, January 9 – I-95 northbound reduced to two lanes beginning in the evening hours. Main Street and Acosta ramps reopen on new roadway between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. and then close again overnight. Atlantic Boulevard and Philips Highway on-ramps continue to be closed with detours.

Sunday, January 10 – I-95 northbound continues to be reduced to two lanes. Main Street and Acosta ramps reopen on new roadway between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. and then close again overnight.  Atlantic Boulevard and Philips Highway on-ramps continue to be closed with detours.

Monday, January 11 – I-95 northbound opens with three lanes on new roadway; Atlantic Boulevard and Philips Highway on-ramps reopened; Main Street/Prudential Drive and Acosta on-ramps also open.

By Monday, January 11, before rush hour begins, all lanes on northbound I-95 from the San Diego Road overpass to just south of the Fuller Warren Bridge will be shifted to a new roadway which will allow the existing bridge to be reconstructed.

At no time will I-95 traffic be detoured off the interstate. Southbound I-95 traffic will not be impacted at this time but is scheduled to be switched to new lanes in the spring.

The updates serve as precautions to motorists who may be in the habit of driving through these areas on a regular basis. Studies indicate that frequently changing traffic patterns make driving more difficult in construction zones.

Up-to-date lane closure information is available on the I-95 Overland Bridge replacement project website at www.I95overlandbridge.com. A project hotline number has been established to assist the public with questions and concerns: (904) 491-2110.
