Construction begins on Hart Expressway Bridge at Beach Boulevard, overnight detours next two weeks
Jacksonville – The Hart Expressway Bridge (State Road 228) at Beach Boulevard (U.S. 90) will see construction rehabilitation activity beginning April 23, expected to be complete in the spring of 2019.
The rehabilitation project includes the coating of steel beams, bridge improvements including the minor repair of expansion joints, drainage improvements and the replacement of bearing pads which assist in the distribution of weight and movement on the bridge.
Nighttime detours will be necessary during portions of the project to ensure the safety of construction crews and the traveling public.
The first detours will take place for two weeks from 7 p.m. until 5 a.m. on Tuesday, April 24 until Friday, May 4, nightly.
During necessary detours, drivers seeking to access the Hart Bridge Expressway from westbound U.S. 90 (Beach Boulevard) will be directed to University Boulevard South (State Road 109) and access the Hart Bridge Expressway ramp. Drivers heading south on the Hart Bridge Expressway and seeking to access eastbound Beach Boulevard, will be detoured at the University Boulevard South exit and signs will guide drivers to Beach Boulevard. Message boards and signs will direct traffic through the detours.
