The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will host a construction open house in St. Augustine regarding the San Marco Avenue/May Street/West San Carlos Avenue intersection improvement project Wednesday, Aug. 16, from 4:30 to 6:30pm in City Hall's Alcazar Room at 75 King St. The meeting will also cover the May Street drainage project.
The public is invited to attend the open house any time during the two hours to learn more about the projects, including timeframe, construction activities, traffic impacts and other details. FDOT project staff will be available to answer questions. This is an informal open house; no presentation is scheduled.
Through collaboration and consensus with the City of St. Augustine and the community, the San Marco Avenue/May Street/West San Carlos Avenue intersection will be reconfigured and widened to allow for better traffic flow in the area.
Construction of the new intersection configuration is set to begin in mid-September and is scheduled to be open for operation in summer 2018. Upon the opening of the intersection, replacement of a stormwater pipe on the north side of May Street from San Marco Avenue to east of Magnolia Avenue will begin and is expected to be completed in the summer of 2019.
