JTA Future Plans

North Corridor Study

In 2013/2014, the BRT downtown infrastructure will expand into the North corridor.

The corridor extends north from Broad Street and State Street in downtown Jacksonville along Boulevard Street to Golfair Boulevard, and then extends west along Golfair Boulevard and north along Brentwood Norwood Avenues to Lem Turner Road, ending approximately at Armsdale Road (south of I-295).

Project status: After receiving the document of the Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) from the Federal Transit Administration (FTA), the north corridor BRT project is in the project development phase.

The project will design and incorporate:
• Enhanced branded shelters with scheduled information
• Branded vehicles
• Intersection technologies to improve reliability
• Sidewalk and streetscape improvements

Current Activity: Design Phase:
Funding: Federal $33.5 million (80% federal,10% state,10% local)
Schedule: Design is expected to be complete in 2012

The JTA is examining opportunities to construct a park-n-ride lot facility on the BRT north corridor route along Lem Turner (SR 115) near Interstate 295 (SR 9A).  As a part of this process, a Park-n-Ride Supplemental Environmental Assessment (SEA) is being conducted to identify, examine and mitigate any potential environmental, social and economic impacts for this area.
