The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is proposing to add sidewalks and bike lanes on Philips Highway between San Marco and Bowden Road, as a part of a $4.5 million resurfacing project. FDOT will be hosting a public workshop on the Philips Highway project tonight.

Proposed improvements to Philips Highway (US 1) between Bowden Road and south of John Street will be discussed at a public meeting Tuesday (April 2) by the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT).
The meeting is at the Fairfield Inn & Suites located at 4888 Lenoir Avenue in Jacksonville. FDOT staff will be available from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. for informal discussion followed by public comments beginning at 6:30 p.m.
FDOT has plans to resurface Philips Highway with work beginning this winter. As part of the resurfacing, FDOT proposes to remove on-street parking and replace with a bicycle lane throughout the project limits. Also, a five-foot wide sidewalk will be added to both sides of the road where there are no sidewalks now.
The project is estimated to cost $4.5 million.
Public participation is solicited without regard to race, color, sex, age, religion, national origin, disability or family status.
For more information on the project, contact FDOT project manager Fae Ross at 800-749-2967 or by e-mail at fae.ross@dot.state.fl.us.
