Main Street Bridge Repair Schedule01/31/2014

Main Street Bridge Repair Schedule

The following statement is from a contractor performing repairs on Jacksonville’s Iconic Main Street Bridge downtown at mile 24.7 over the St. Johns River. Sadler will post all updates on our website as we get them:

Superior Construction is performing repairs on the Main St. Bridge through early 2015. These repairs involve the replacement of the sidewalk and installation of a guardrail system to protect the steel bridge members and motorists. At times throughout the project, we will require a 2 hour advanced notice between the hours of 6am and 7pm and a 4 hour advanced notice between the hours of 7pm and 6am to open the bridge. This is to ensure the lift span is in balance and safe prior to an opening as work is being performed. It is Superior Construction Company’s desire to notify mariners, by emailing the proposed closures every Friday for the following week. Please note these dates may change due to unforeseen circumstances such as weather or equipment failure. Unless specifically identified in the schedule, mariners should anticipate the described opening restrictions are in effect. Additionally, to support mariners with the latest information we have provided a cell phone to the bridge tenders at the Main Street Bridge who can be contacted at any time, 904-891-2191.

Next week the following dates will require a 2 hour advanced notice:
2/4/14
2/5/14
2/6/14
