Palm Avenue

Client: City of Jacksonville/Baptist Health

ETM played a pivotal role in the design and permitting of the 4-lane reconstruction of Palm Avenue, stretching from Gary Street to Prudential Drive. The project encompassed various elements, such as the design of four signalized intersections, a closed storm-drain collection system, landscaping, hardscaping, and lighting.

Recognizing the high volume of pedestrian traffic in the area, ETM implemented innovative traffic calming measures by incorporating raised intersections. These raised intersections not only enhance safety, but also effectively mitigate traffic speed, promoting a more pedestrian-friendly environment.

A notable challenge during the project was its adjacency to the Baptist Medical Center. To ensure uninterrupted access for both vehicles and pedestrians throughout all phases of construction, ETM developed a phased temporary traffic control plan. This plan meticulously outlined the necessary measures and protocols to maintain a smooth flow of traffic and ensure the safety of all stakeholders.

Furthermore, ETM secured permits from the City of Jacksonville, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), and the St. Johns River Water Management District (SJRWMD).
