The public had the opportunity to weigh in on upcoming road improvements planned for Edgewood Avenue South from U.S. 17 (State Road 15) to Lenox Avenue and from Lenox Avenue from State Road 111/Cassat Avenue to Edgewood Avenue South during a hybrid public hearing and open house held on both Zoom and in person at Florida Department of Transportation’s Jacksonville headquarters on Edison Avenue.

The plans include repurposing the four through travel lanes down to two through lanes on Edgewood Avenue South so that bicycle and shared-use lanes can be installed. Also included in the project will be three new mid-block crossings with flashing beacons between Mayflower Street and Corby Street, Antisdale Street and Post Street, and Post Street and Jasmine Place. Traffic signal heads will also be relocated due to the lane repurposing.

In addition, the US 17/Roosevelt Boulevard bridge will be cleaned and re-coated, the existing sidewalk will be connected with newly constructed sidewalks, ADA curb ramps will be upgraded as well existing pedestrian signals. Where they are needed, new pedestrian signals will be installed. Minor utility improvements are also part of the project, which will cost $2.6 million.

The project was due to start this past summer. It is expected to be competed in the fall of 2022.
