Jacksonville Riverwalk

  • Project Value: $ 2,248,000
  • Project Status: Completed December 2005
  • Client: City of Jacksonville
  • A/E: Akel, Logan & Shafer

The Riverwalk project was approximately ½ mile of 12’ wide brick paver path. The project schedule was extremely short as the Super Bowl was coming to Jacksonville and the path had to be complete prior to the game. The budget was also constrained and by reusing a existing dock for the pedestrian bridge foundation, the project not only met its budget but was also completed on time.
