St Johns County approves upcoming changes

Ponte Vedra Boulevard Pavement Management Project

As part of the St Johns County Pavement Management Program, Ponte Vedra Boulevard will be milled and resurfaced from Corona Road South to SR-A1A beginning Monday, May 11th.

The project completion is expected within 30 days, weather permitting, according to Michael Ryan, Director of the Communications Division of St Johns County.  The contractor will provide the proper maintenance of traffic which will require intermittent lane closures throughout the project duration. Any impacted areas within the project limits will be restored to pre-construction conditions.
