The Recovery Act


The Recovery Act

The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 is a newly created effort by the United States government to jumpstart our nation’s economy by creating and saving millions of jobs and addressing long-standing challenges. The Act provides for never-before-seen levels of transparency and accountability so you’ll know how, when and where your tax dollars are being spent. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act also includes built-in metrics to dispel waste, inefficiency and unnecessary spending. Jacksonville Transportation Authority (JTA) is ready to put these stimulus dollars to work in Northeast Florida to improve and grow mass transit services and design and construct bridges and highways. 

You will now be able to see JTA grants and projects that will allow us to enhance our services, expand our capabilities and continue to serve the growing Northeast Florida region. Major planned investments include new roadways and bridge enhancements to existing traffic corridors, energy-efficient hybrid cooling systems and and also biometric access systems for protection of critical transportation facilities.
