Hendricks Avenue Streetscape: Photo Tour

The Hendricks Avenue project extends approximately one mile from Mitchell Avenue to Prudential Drive through a predominantly commercial area. The existing road is a four-lane arterial with no left turn lanes. There is an FEC railroad crossing near the I-95 overpass that will remain. The proposed road is a three-lane section. The project will include bike lanes and widened decorative sidewalks. Other improvements include historic lighting and landscaping. Existing signalized intersections will be improved to accommodate the new roadway configuration and to install mast arm type signals. Existing overhead utilities will be relocated underground to provide a more aesthethically pleasing corridor. -- DowntownJacksonville.org
