Jacksonville Road and
Almshouse Road Intersection Improvements Virtual Public Meeting
The intersection of Jacksonville Road and Almshouse Road currently experiences significant traffic backups during the AM and PM peak hours. This is partially due to high traffic volumes, including trucks and school buses, the lack of dedicated turning lanes and poor intersection geometry. The poor intersection geometry is due to the presence of a retaining wall and stream that is located adjacent to the travel lane on the southeastern corner of the intersection. Trucks and school buses turning from Jacksonville Road onto Almshouse Road often encroach into the westbound Almshouse Road travel lane. The intersection also experiences flooding during storm events.
The S.R. 2089, Section ALM project will address congestion and operational issues at the intersection. Improvements will consist of the installation of a single lane roundabout at the intersection of Jacksonville Road and Almshouse Road, widening for an eastbound left turn lane at the intersection of Old Jacksonville Road and Almshouse Road, shoulder widening, drainage improvements and signing upgrades.
Traffic will be maintained through the project limits for the duration of construction via staged construction. Jacksonville Road and Almshouse Road will maintain one lane of traffic in each direction and lanes will be shifted as necessary to construct each side of the roadway through the project limits. Short term (less than 72 hours) detours of Jacksonville Road and Almshouse Road may be required. Access to driveways will be maintained at all times.
The project is currently in design and construction work is currently estimated to begin in late 2024. This schedule is tentative and subject to change.
A virtual public meeting will be held on October 27, 2022. Online comment forms will be available through Friday, November 11, 2022.
