UPDATED: McDuff Avenue to Close


The Jacksonville Transportation Authority has reached a point in the construction on the McDuff Avenue project where closing McDuff Avenue at the north CSX railroad crossing (closest to Beaver Street) for the installation of a new CSX crossing is required. 

Weather delays have moved back scheduled traffic detours until the second or third week of October (was September).  Once the detours will continue for approximately 3-4 weeks.  As this is a CSX project, the exact date is not yet known. We will post the date on the JTA web site ( and it will appear on the electronic message boards in the project area.   



The message board locations will include both eastbound and westbound traffic on Beaver Street; for northbound traffic on McDuff (prior to the railroad tracks) and southbound traffic on McDuff (north of Beaver Street ) announcing the closure.  Further, a traffic alert will posted on the JTA web site.

Construction on the entire McDuff Avenue project is scheduled for completion in the second quarter of 2009.
