Open House

__________________________________________________
 
Join FDOT on Thursday, March 5 from 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the Jupiter Community Center for an informative open house to learn about upcoming construction related to the US 1 Bridge Replacement Project .   Attendees will be able to see renderings of the new bridge and landscape, review the roadway improvements associated with the project’s detour routes, and view the schedules for the roadway improvements, road closures and bridge construction. Representatives will be on-hand to answer any questions attendees may have about the project.  
Proposed Improvements
  • Bridge replacement that provides improved navigation clearances 
  • Bicycle lanes and sidewalks on both sides of the bridge
  • Intelligent Transportation Systems that use technology to improve traffic flow 
  • Improved traffic operations at Alternate A1A and Dixie Highway through a reconfigured intersection and the addition of a traffic signal

Traffic Mitigation During Construction
A full bridge closure is planned to facilitate the construction of the new bridge. Bridge traffic will be detoured to Alternate A1A for approximately 20 months. FDOT's goal is to minimize the impacts of the bridge closure to the community to the greatest extent possible. This will include a commitment to provide interim improvements along the detour route to improve traffic flow during construction for the following intersections:
  • Indiantown Road and Alternative A1A
  • Indiantown Road and US 1
  • Old Dixie Highway/Alternate A1A and US 1
