FDOT to give updated plans to St. Augustine City Council on seawall project

FDOT will present new plans to city leaders in St. Augustine on Monday.

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. — On Mon., June 10, St. Augustine city leaders will hear an update on a project to replace the seawall downtown -- along the Matanzas River.


The Florida Department of Transportation shared new renderings. They show their plan to build a 42-inch barrier between the Bridge of Lions and Charlotte Street.

FDOT is asking for $45 million to build the seawall, up from the originally proposed $42 million, and is expected to have it ready by November 2025.

Action News Jax first covered the project proposal back in January.
