Construction is underway on the Jacksonville National Cemetery Access Road in northwest Jacksonville.
The Jacksonville National Cemetery Access Road includes the construction of approximately 3.4 miles of new two-lane road connecting Lannie Road, at the Ethel Road intersection, and Arnold Road. The roadway will feature bike lanes, ponds to promote drainage, a newly constructed bridge over Seaton Creek and improve transportation options for motorists seeking to access the Jacksonville National Cemetery.
At the conclusion of the project, ownership of the roadway will be transferred to the City of Jacksonville.
The $12.8 million project was awarded to Anderson Columbia Contractors, Inc. and is expected to be completed in fall 2021, weather and schedule permitting.
