JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says drivers heading into downtown need to leave early due to the closing of the Mathews Bridge.

East/Westbound detours through the downtown area
Eastbound primary detour route is to the Hart Bridge via the Union St. Expressway to the Sports Complex exit
Westbound primary detour route is to the Hart Bridge via Cesery Blvd to Atlantic Blvd.

Detours for Arlington, Ft. Caroline, & Regency areas in the afternoon hours
I95 North to Zoo Parkway to the Dames Point Bridge

Detours for Southside area
I95 South to Emerson/University Blvd. exits

Morning commute
Plan on leaving early and be patience. The commute will have heavy congestion. Suggestion are:
1. Plan on leaving early
2. Please be patience
3. Heavy congestion approaching the detour route
4. Be mindful of additional delays near schools and bus stops

JTA is advising people who use the AR6, CT2, CT4, S1 and R5 buses to expect unusually longer trips until the bridge is reopened.
The extra commute time could be from 30 to 60 minutes.
