The St. Johns River Ferry will be closed beginning Tuesday, September 4 for a period of two months so that the Jacksonville Transportation Authority can replace the terminal bridges and perform required maintenance.

Phase III of JTA’s investment in the St. Johns River Ferry is under construction and is anticipated to be completed in January 2019. The scope includes removal of existing terminal bridges along with the design and construction of rehabilitated bulkheads, replacement of terminal bridges and installation of stopping mechanisms.

Earlier this year, the JTA was awarded a $3,356,900 Passenger Ferry Grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Transit Administration (FTA).
