Pipe project to impact shopping center


The St. Johns County Utility Department recently began a pipeline project that will connect two of the county’s water reclamation facilities in Ponte Vedra Beach.

For the safety of crews and the general public, two access points to the Ponte Vedra Pointe shopping center will be impacted by the project, which is scheduled for completion in late February.

The driveway from Palm Valley Road to the Ponte Vedra Pointe shopping center near Goodwill is limited to local deliveries only, and traffic from Palm Valley Road is diverted north to the driveway near Walgreens.

Additionally, the entrance near Panera Bread will be closed throughout the project.

Additional pipeline construction on the east side of State Road A1A from Ponte Vedra Pointe to the Sawgrass Drive West-A1A intersection will occur after THE PLAYERS Championship golf tournament in March.

Once the pipeline is complete, the Sawgrass Water Reclamation Facility, 10047 Sawgrass Drive West, will be decommissioned and those flows will be diverted to the Players Club Water Reclamation Facility, 1100 ATP Tour Blvd.
