JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It's a stretch of I-95 driven by about 120,000 vehicles each day, even though transportation officials consider it "structurally deficient."
So, more than $200 million mostly federal dollars are being spent on the Overland Bridge replacement project.
A section of road south of the Fuller Warren Bridge spanning Hendricks Avenue, Kings Avenue and Montana Avenue which has undergone routine repairs in recent years will now get a makeover.
"It is a major project, perhaps the most expensive project that's ever been done in Northeast Florida," said Mike Goldman, spokesman for the Florida Department of Transportation.
Construction to replace the overpasses is set to begin in January. On Tuesday night, FDOT held its third public meeting in the past few year about the project.
"It's going to be totally replaced," Goldman told Action News, "There will be improved capacity on the interstate. There will be additional access to various points especially along Atlantic Blvd."
Construction is expected to last into 2016. Officials say no lane closures will take place during peak driving hours because road work will be performed at night.
