Palm Valley Bridge sidewalk to undergo maintenance


The sidewalk and adjacent shoulder on the east end of the Palm Valley Bridge will be closed for repairs starting Jan. 9.

Jay Brawley, county engineer for St. Johns County, said some of the dirt under the sidewalk has migrated away, which has caused air spaces to form. These air spaces, said Brawley, need to be filled before they cause the sidewalk to become uneven.

“We’re doing it as a repair project to maintain safe conditions,” he said.

The sidewalk will be closed for three weeks to fill the voids. No impacts to motorists are anticipated.
