Through collaboration and consensus with the City of St. Augustine and the community, the intersection of San Marco Avenue, West San Carlos Avenue and May Street will be reconfigured and widened to allow for better traffic flow in the area.
The intersection improvement project includes the reconfiguration and widening of the existing San Marco Avenue and May Street intersection and widens it to include West San Carlos Avenue. The addition of dedicated right and left turn lanes, median modifications, synchronized traffic signals, sidewalks, shared bicycle lanes and HAWK (High-intensity Activated crossWalK) pedestrian signals will contribute to better traffic flow in addition to increased bicyclist and pedestrian safety in the area.
The project also includes the replacement of an approximate quarter-mile of storm water pipe on May Street from San Marco Avenue to the Hospital Creek Bridge, east of Magnolia Avenue.
The new intersection is scheduled to be operational in summer 2018. Upon the opening of the intersection, the drainage project will begin and is expected to be complete in summer 2019.
The combined cost for both projects is $9.2 million. Petticoat-Schmitt Civil Contractors, Inc. is the Construction Contractor.
Crews will begin mobilizing for the intersection project on Monday, October 30.
Should lane closures be required, they are restricted to between the hours of 9:30 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. daily.
