The 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.
