From NAS Jax PWD
In late July 2016 PWD Jacksonville awarded three construction projects for repairs to Saratoga Ave. and Mustin Rd. The focus of these projects will be similar to what was completed a year ago at Child St. and Enterprise Ave. to include; widen portions of the roads to install turning lanes at major intersections, install curbing and improve drainage along the roads.
The Mustin Rd. project will take place between Yorktown and Birmingham Avenues. A center turning lane will be added through the full length of this section and a new mast arm structure will be installed for the lights at Yorktown Ave. The contractor for this project is Baker Klein Engineering. This road will be closed to traffic from Jan. 3 to June 30, 2017.
The Saratoga project takes place from Allegheny Ave. to Langley Ave. This project will have two phases with the first phase closing two sections of Saratoga Ave. between Allegheny Ave. to Gillis Ave. and Mustin Rd. to Langley Ave. During Phase 1, cross-traffic between Yorktown and Birmingham Avenues can use Allegheny Ave., Child St. and Jason St. This phase will run from Jan. 3 to Mar. 30, 2017.
The second phase of work on Saratoga will close a section of the road from Gillis Ave. to Mustin Rd. During Phase 2, cross-traffic between Yorktown and Birmingham Avenues can use Allegheny Ave., Child St. and Gillis St. This phase will run from Apr.1 to May 30, 2017. The contractor for this work is Central Southern Construction (CSC).
As with any road construction project it is important to heighten your awareness in construction zones and also abide by the traffic signs that are in place. The safety of both the workers and the Station pedestrians and motorists are essential for making these projects successful. PWD POC is Thom Tryon at 904-542-1693 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
