This work was followed by a joint Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), City of Jacksonville (COJ) and JEA paving project which was completed last month.

The final phase of this work involves the upgrading and replacement of the failing drainage structures located at the intersection of Osceola Street and Riverside Avenue. This FDOT and COJ joint drainage project is designed to improve the drainage at this intersection.

This drainage project will be managed by the FDOT and COJ and is completely separate from the original JEA water and sewer projects.
The contractors are scheduled to work Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Restoration of the project area will begin after drainage structures have been installed. Upon completion of the project, any existing grass, curb, gutter, driveways or sidewalks affected during construction will be returned to its pre?construction condition. Once the work at the intersection is completed, the contractor will install temporary pavement. FDOT will schedule the final milling, resurfacing and striping of this area. The final restoration and paving is estimated to be completed in January 2014 (subject to change).
