purpose of this project is to replace the
existing State Road (S.R.) 44 bridge over the St. Johns River, also
known as the Whitehair Bridge, with a high-level fixed span
bridge. During construction, the existing S.R. 44 bridge will remain open
for drivers to use while the new bridge is constructed to the south of the
existing bridge. After construction, the existing bridge will be removed.
This project will begin construction
in summer of 2020.
