CNG Infrastructure Project Wins APWA Florida Chapter Project of the Year

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA – May 5, 2016 – The Jacksonville Transportation Authority’s (JTA) Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) Infrastructure project has been named the 2016 Environmental Project of the Year by the Florida Chapter of the American Public Works Association. The project was a partnership between JTA, RS&H and Clean Energy.

The project won the award in the $5 million to $25 million category for using an innovative public-private partnership (P3) approach that leveraged state and federal grants to build the CNG Infrastructure project. The project modernized JTA’s fueling and maintenance facilities, added new CNG buses, and constructed a public CNG fueling station that serves private and personal CNG vehicles in Northeast Florida.

“Congratulations to our partners RS&H and Clean Energy, and the JTA CNG team,” said JTA Chief Executive Officer Nathaniel P. Ford Sr. “The CNG Infrastructure project is part of an overall master plan to transform the Myrtle Avenue Campus into an operations campus that will allow JTA to be more efficient, environmentally friendly and cost effective.”

The Clean Energy station is easily accessible for heavy-duty fleet trucks and passenger vehicles. The new CNG station will be open 24 hours a day, seven days a week and uses a public access card reader system. The station includes one single hose dispenser, with the capability of adding an additional three dispensers. The entrance to the station is located at the intersection of Bay Street and Myrtle Avenue.
