Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) | JTA Mobility Works Alta Drive Project
The Alta Drive roadway improvements included the widening of the existing roadway to a six-lane, divided roadway from the I-295 exit to Faye Road, a four-lane divided roadway to Ashgrove Road and a five-lane roadway to Burkit Lane. The project also features bike lanes, sidewalks and a closed drainage system. The bridge over Dunn Creek will be restriped to match the adjacent roadway sections. There will be a new or upgraded signal installed at Faye Road and Port Jacksonville Parkway. This project will increase roadway capacity, reduce congestion and provide a safer facility.
