Palm Avenue Water Main Replacement

Jacksonville Electric Authority

Coolness Factor:

This project was successfully constructed in a congested underground and pedestrian corridor adjacent to Baptist Medical Center Downtown. To maintain JEA Critical Customer service, the existing mains will remain in service throughout the water main construction.

Description:

Jones Edmunds provided design and permitting services to replace these ageing facilities. Specifically, the existing 8-inch cast iron water main along Prudential Drive, from the intersection with Palm Avenue to the main hospital entrance, was replaced with a new 8-inch ductile iron water main through open-cut construction. The 12-inch cast iron water main along Palm Avenue, from the intersection with Gary Street at the south to the intersection with Prudential Drive in the north, with the exception of a short 45-foot jack and bore, was replaced with a new 12-inch ductile iron water main to be installed via open-cut construction.
