St. Johns River Bridge Easing Traffic for 10 years

After years of planning and construction, the St. Johns River Bridge has contributed to the efficient flow of traffic for more than ten years. When it was put in service in 2004, the bridge was hailed for providing instant relief to chronic logjams along Interstate 4. 

The structure has a dual profile with two three-lane spans, each with wide shoulders. Initially, the bridge was to have been build in 2014, but thanks to a strong lobbying effort led by G&A’s Mayram Ghyabi, work on the bridge commenced a full decade ahead of schedule, leaving planners to wonder what kind of traffic problems have been avoided as a result of having fast-traced the project.
