Main St. Bridge Ramp Next To Landing Site To Be Demolished In 2021

Sep 8, 2020

When bulldozers knocked down the Jacksonville Landing, the nearby on-ramp to the Main Street bridge gave motorists, joggers, walkers and cyclists an up-close view of the demolition as they passed by it on daily commutes and workouts.

In the spring of 2021, that ramp will go the way of the Landing when crews take down the ramp in a $1.3 million demolition job, creating more space for as yet undetermined new private development on the property where the Landing used to stand, according to WJCT News partner The Florida Times-Union.

The crescent-shaped Landing was designed to avoid any conflict with the on-ramp from Independent Drive to the Main Street bridge, but city leaders have been talking since 2014 about taking out the ramp in tandem with demolishing the Landing.

The current redevelopment concept envisions most of 6.8 acres site being green park space with two new buildings set back from the river.
