You are invited to a public workshop to discuss the I-95 Overland Bridge Replacement project.  The project begins south of San Diego Road and ends north of Palm Avenue. The workshop will be held Tuesday, November 9, 2010, at the Duval County School Board, 1701 Prudential Drive, Jacksonville, Florida 32207.  
Doors will open at 4:30 p.m., with a public comment period at 6:30 p.m.  There will be no formal presentation.  You are invited to come anytime during the workshop to meet one-on-one with project staff and discuss any questions you may have about the project.
The purpose of the proposed project is to replace the Overland Bridge, which carries both northbound and southbound traffic on I-95 and spans Hendricks Avenue, Kings Avenue, and Montana Avenue in downtown Jacksonville.  The bridge is being replaced due to structural deterioration which is causing the need for frequent repairs.  Previous public meetings have been held to discuss this project and receive input.  Based on the input received, changes are being proposed to the project.  These changes will require additional right of way and may affect your property.  This public workshop is being held to present and discuss the Department’s proposed changes and to receive your input.  
All residents, property owners and interested persons or groups are encouraged to come and participate. Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability or family status.
