San Marco Avenue, West San Carlos Avenue and May Street Intersection Improvements
Overview

Through collaboration and consensus with the City of St. Augustine and the community, the intersection of San Marco Avenue, West San Carlos Avenue and May Street will be reconfigured and widened to allow for better traffic flow in the area.

The intersection improvement project includes the reconfiguration and widening of the existing San Marco Avenue and May Street intersection and widens it to include West San Carlos Avenue. The addition of dedicated right and left turn lanes, median modifications, synchronized traffic signals, sidewalks, shared bicycle lanes and HAWK (High-intensity Activated crossWalK) pedestrian signals will contribute to better traffic flow in addition to increased bicyclist and pedestrian safety in the area.

The project also includes the replacement of an approximate quarter-mile of storm water pipe on May Street from San Marco Avenue to the Hospital Creek Bridge, east of Magnolia Avenue.

The new intersection is scheduled to be operational in fall 2019, weather and unforeseen circumstances permitting. Upon the opening of the intersection, the drainage project will begin.

The combined cost for both projects is $9.5 million. Petticoat-Schmitt Civil Contractors, Inc. is the Construction Contractor.

Should lane closures be required, they are restricted to between the hours of 9:30 p.m. and 6:30 a.m. daily.

A new temporary traffic pattern was implemented Monday, July 1 in order for the contractor to complete work on May Street. In the current pattern, westbound May Street traffic wishing to travel north on San Marco Avenue will utilize the right lane and continue north. Westbound May Street traffic wishing to travel southbound San Marco Avenue or to U.S. 1 will utilize the left lane. Traffic is expected to remain in this pattern until reconstruction work at May Street has been completed. Additional traffic shifts will be necessary for the contractor to safely complete the remaining work.
