Arlington Expressway project extended
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A contractor working for JEA had a mechanical failure while working on a pipe under Arlington Expressway.
The closure of the eastbound travel lane and eight on/off ramps along Arlington Expressway from the foot of the Mathews Bridge to the Arlington Road overpass will be extended through the weekend.
JEA is working with all affected agencies, the Jaguars and the public. This includes coordinating traffic with JSO and FDOT during special events like Friday's Jaguars pre-season game. JEA and JSO recommend the use of the Hart Bridge before and after Friday's game at EverBank Field.
Drivers traveling the Arlington Expressway westbound to downtown or to other points west of the river should not be impacted by the construction.
JEA is building a pipeline to balance water withdrawals from the aquifer on each side of the St. Johns River. The project includes a potable water transmission pipeline comprised of six projects or segments of large diameter water pipe.
