Myrtle Avenue Bridge

Mike Shell

Jacksonville, United States

Artist's Description

Supports for the Myrtle Avenue Bridge, supporting I-95, North Riverside, Jacksonville, FL (2/17/2013)
From Metro Jacksonville:
The Myrtle Avenue Overpass carries I-95 over Myrtle Avenue and a railroad line in downtown Jacksonville. The main, steel arch span of the overpass is 386 feet long. There are 16 steel girder approach spans that bring the total length to over 1,400 feet in length.
This bridge represents Florida’s only steel arch, the state’s only through arch carrying interstate traffic, and the only arch design serving as a grade separation. It was identified in an update to Florida’s historic highway bridge inventory, and, as a result, the FDOT and the Florida SHPO concurred that this bridge represents a significant historic resource for the state.
