In this high-profile riverfront improvement, the City of Jacksonville wanted to connect the Riverwalk to the Jacksonville Sports Complex. Superior Construction was hired as the design-build contractor of the project, which extended Coastline Drive and Liberty Street over the St. Johns River while replacing a deteriorating existing structure. This area is the narrowest part of the river, which means the water velocity had eroded what was essentially a 50-year-old quay built atop pilings in the river, to the point that parts of the structure had collapsed into the river.
