About the Project

I-95 Overland Bridge

This project will replace the series of overpasses that carry traffic on Interstate 95 over Hendricks, Kings and Montana avenues and Atlantic Boulevard.

Other major project details include:

  • Widening I-95 to provide an additional lane in the southbound direction
  • Improving the way traffic enters and exits I-95 at Atlantic Boulevard and Philips Highway/Kings Avenue by providing a full-service interchange
  • Providing additional capacity by adding a two-lane parallel service road for northbound traffic and reconstruct the existing southbound lanes
  • Replacing the I-95 elevated roadway from south of the Fuller Warren Bridge to north of Emerson Street
  • Replacing the I-95 overpass over the FEC railroad near Baptist Medical Center
  • Improving access to and from the Acosta and Main Street bridges
  • Improving the traffic pattern for traffic exiting the Main Street Bridge heading into the San Marco area
  • Permanently closing access to Hendricks Avenue from the southbound Main Street Bridge, new access to Hendricks Avenue will be from Riverplace Boulevard or Prudential Drive
  • Widening the south end of the southbound Fuller Warren Bridge to provide a two-lane exit ramp to the southbound parallel service road
  • Adding bicycle lanes on Atlantic Boulevard from Kings Avenue to Stevens Street alongside the eastbound travel lanes and from Kings Avenue to Old Hickory Road alongside the westbound lanes
  • Eliminating existing drainage ponds under the Fuller Warren Bridge; one remaining as a grassed lot, the other will become an improved parking lot
As the project is built, traffic will use parallel roadways, which upon completion of the I-95 bridge structures, will remain and provide additional capacity for traffic between the Fuller Warren Bridge and north of Emerson Street.

The Overland Bridge project will be built in phases. View the phases below to see how each will affect your daily commute.

Phase 1 | Phase 2 | Phase 3 | Phase 4 | Phase 5 | Phase 6

Impacts to the public
Construction will occur in six phases. During each phase of work, traffic will be shifted to allow for other construction items to be completed. Lane closures are allowed from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. One lane is closed at 8 p.m. with additional lanes closed at 10 p.m. Off of I-95, lane closures occur throughout the day. Pile driving is only allowed during daytime hours.

Construction may be suspended during holidays and special events, including:

  • TPC Golf Tournament
  • Florida-Georgia football game
  • Jaguar home football games
  • Gator Bowl
  • Greater Jacksonville Agricultural Fair
  • Kingfish Tournament
  • Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival
  • Daytona 500
  • Coke Zero 400
  • Daytona Bike Week
The noise wall will be built early in the project to minimize noise impacts to the adjacent neighborhoods during construction.
