Broward River bridges due for replacement — and lane closures

For people who regularly drive North Main Street into Yulee or North Jacksonville, prepare to bear with some lane closures as the Florida Department of Transportation begins work on the Broward River Bridge replacement project just north of Busch Drive.

The payoff of this $14 million project is the replacement of the northbound and southbound bridges with new lanes on a single span, the FDOT said. The work will include a new median barrier wall and sidewalk on the east side, plus a bicycle lane.

Contractors also will close the median on North Main about 700 feet south of the current bridge as part of the project.
