The Better Jacksonville Plan and JTA's Involvement
Continuing a half-century legacy of road and bridge building in Duval County, JTA is designing and will construct 32 major road projects totaling nearly $800 million in this decade in partnership with The Better Jacksonville Plan. Projects include bridge replacement, adding lanes on existing roadways and improvements at major intersections. In addition, JTA is completing eight road projects from previous bond issues.
Many people think of JTA only as buses. But JTA has been and continues as a major road and bridge builder in Duval County.
Since 1953 JTA and its predecessor, the Jacksonville Expressway Authority, have built six bridges and several hundred miles of highway that crisscross our county and lead to or are part of the Florida state highway system. The foresight of planning for future growth has served to minimize traffic issues plaguing other large cities.
This network enriches the fabric of every day living by providing mobility to jobs, family, social and religious activities and adding billions of dollars in economic development to the local market.View Open/Active Project Advertisements
