Roadway Alta Drive (South of Faye Road North to Burkit Lane)


The scope of the Alta Drive roadway improvements will include 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 will also feature 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.


In August 2017, the JTA Board awarded England, Thims & Miller the contract to provide design and professional services. The final design and right-of-way acquisitions will be completed first quarter of 2019.  Construction will be awarded June 2019 and construction is expected to be completed by March 2021.



This project will increase roadway capacity, reduce congestion and provide a safer facility
