  • The Florida Department of Transportation, District 2 announces a hearing to which all persons are invited.
    DATE AND TIME: March 5, 2009, 6:30 p.m.
    PLACE: Bradham Brooks Northwest Library, 1755 Edgewood Avenue, W., Jacksonville, Florida
    GENERAL SUBJECT MATTER TO BE CONSIDERED: This hearing is being held to afford interested persons the opportunity to express their views concerning the location, conceptual design, social, economic and environmental effects of Financial Project ID Number 209451-3, otherwise known as SR 111 (Tallulah Avenue) from the east end of Moncrief Creek Bridge to SR 5 (Main Street), Jacksonville, Florida. The proposed improvements will be to resurface Tallulah Avenue. The Department is recommending as part of the resurfacing project to re-stripe the roadway to a three-lane section, replacing the four 10 foot wide travel lanes. The proposed roadway will consist of a 10 foot wide two-way center turn lane and a 12 foot wide travel lane in each direction with a 3 foot wide paved shoulder on either side. This will allow vehicles to safely move into a center turn lane without blocking the remaining travel lanes and place traveling vehicles further away from residences. Five foot sidewalks will also be added from 68th Street to Main Street (north side) and from Lorain Street to Pearl Street (south side). This hearing is being held to present the construction plans, discuss the Department’s recommendations and receive public input. Right of way will not be required for the proposed improvements. This project is being developed in compliance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
