Start date:  May 2018
Completion Date: October 2018
Investment: $1,574,639.00

Project Update: 

May 2018 -- Construction began in early May with work on the outside lanes and a retaining wall behind the sidewalk at Wendy's.  Drive approaches and curbs installed along east side of Anthony from Crescent to Coliseum.

June 2018 - Crews continue work on the outside lanes, curbs, approaches and retaining wall.  Concrete patching on N. Anthony and St Joe River Dr.  

July 2018 - Sidewalks poured along the new block wall at Wendy's, Storm sewers installed on St. Joe River Drive.

August 2018 - St. Joe River Drive is open again, work continues on drive approaches and curbface walk on St. Joe River Dr.

August 13-17 - Before the rainy conditions arrived at the end of the week, crews were able to lay top soil and  pour the ramps at the northwest and southwest corners of St. Joe River Drive and N. Anthony Blvd.

August 23 - Although the recent rainfalls have been beneficial to the new top soil, it has prevented construction work so far this week.  Look for traffic control to be switched to the center lanes in the near future, a definitive date for the lane change will be shared as soon as determined!

August 27-31 - Brooks Construction poured retaining curb on St. Joe River Dr. (westbound) and switched traffic to the outer lanes to allow work within the median area along North Anthony Blvd. Crews began pavement and median excavation north of St. Joe River Dr. after the shift of traffic.

September 3-7 - Crews continued removing the median north of St. Joe River Drive.  They began bringing in fill dirt for the portion of the median south of Coliseum that will receive top soil and new landscaping. Work will continue in the center lanes for the next few weeks.

September 10-14 - Brooks began backfilling behind the curb along St. Joe River Dr. west of N. Anthony Blvd.  They also began milling at the north end of N. Anthony Blvd. Work will continue in the center lanes for the next few weeks.


Newly poured concrete needs 7 days to cure. Do NOT move barricades and drive over concrete that is curing. It can damage the concrete, reduce the pavement’s life  -- causing it to crumble within months. Please be vigilant and stop people from moving barricades.

Parking: Residents may not have access to their driveway while work is being done on the section of their street. Please park away from construction and DO NOT block traffic lanes.

Trash & Recycling Collection: The night before collection day, residents should place their garbage and recycling containers near the curb, away from the barricades of construction zones for collection – which may be across the street or at the end of the cul-de-sac.

If garbage collection trucks are not able to get to your street, due to construction work, they will try to collect the next day, before construction begins in the morning. For more information, call 311.

Neighborhood Engagement: Public Works staff members have been meeting with neighborhood associations to give residents the opportunity to view work zones, meet the contractors and ask questions about work being done in their neighborhoods. For questions or concerns, you may reach the Division of Public Works by calling 311 or 427-8311.
