We’re excited to announce that Superior Construction was selected to build the First Coast Expressway (SR16 to Shands Bridge) project in Clay County for the Florida Department of Transportation
. This $179.24M, 9.4 mile project includes the construction of 14 bridges; 12,000 CY of structural concrete; 2.2M pounds of reinforcing steel; 14,000 LF concrete girders; 22,000 LF concrete piling; 3M CY of excavation; 6M CY of embankment; and 178,000 tons of asphalt. When completed, this open-road tolling project will enhance connectivity and spur economic development in Northeast Florida.
Superior Construction recently broke ground on our First Coast Expressway project. This nearly 10-mile greenfield project includes a new multi-lane and limited access toll road, approximately six million cubic yards of embarkment, a drainage system with storm water ponds, 15 bridges, tolling facilities, and a four-lane diverging diamond interchange. The diverging diamond interchange diverts the traffic pattern, increasing safety for travelers making left turns across traffic. The First Coast Expressway project has a five-year duration with a Fall 2024 projected completion date.
