Construction of the Sherry Drive-Seminole Road multi-use path project, which will improve pedestrian and bicycle safety in the community, is now slated to begin in December 2018 or January 2019. This Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT)-funded and Jacksonville Transportation Authority-administered project was scheduled to begin in late summer, but has been delayed because the bids came in over budget.
Commonly known as a “Safe Routes to School” project, the path will span the east side of Sherry Drive and Seminole Road from Ahern Street north to 17th Street. Children attending Atlantic Beach Elementary School will especially benefit from the 8-foot-wide concrete multi-use path.
