FDOT Project on the US1 Bridge

Join FDOT for an informative open house to learn about upcoming construction related to the US 1 Bridge Replacement Project. Attendees will be able to see renderings of the new bridge and landscape, review the roadway improvements associated with the project’s detour routes, and view the schedules for the roadway improvements, road closures and bridge construction.  Representatives will be on-hand to answer any questions attendees may have about the project.

Proposed Improvements

  • Bridge replacement that provides improved navigation clearances of 35 feet vertical and 125 feet horizontal 
  • Bicycle lanes and sidewalks on both sides of the bridge
  • Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) to be provided. ITS uses technology to improve traffic flow which makes a facility safer and less congested.
  • Improve traffic operations at Alternate A1A and Dixie Highway by reconfiguring intersection and adding a traffic signal

FDOT maintains the current project page for information on cost, timing and design. Current FDOT plans call for the closure and detours to begin in Fall 2022.

At the April 16, 2019 Town Council meeting, representatives of FDOT gave a presentation on the status of the design, the timing, and the proposal for full closures and detours.  View that presentation here, or watch the video of the discussion at the meeting.
