This week, February 17, 2016, the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will host a public meeting on the replacement of the US 1 Bridge, connecting the Town of Jupiter to the Village of Tequesta.  The meeting is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. - 7:30 p.m. at the Jupiter Community Center. 

The bridge, constructed in 1958, spans over the Loxahatchee River and Intracoastal Waterway.  It has been deemed "structurally deficient and functionally obsolete".  In September of 2014, the bridge was structurally checked out and received "substandard sufficiency ratings providing justification for replacement". 

Back in 2013 a $16 million rehab of the bridge was taken into consideration.  Replacing the 50 plus year old bridge was considered at a cost of $80 million.  At the time in 2013, the Florida Department of Transportation project manager stated a new bridge was not justified because the bridge was structurally sound. 

The meeting begins with an open house at 5:30 p.m. followed by a formal project presentation at 6:00 p.m.  The proposed bridge replacement meeting will address bridge corrosion, United States Coast Guard clearance requirements, as well as bicycle lanes and pedestrian accesibility.

Residents of both communities, both Tequesta and Jupiter, are encouraged to attend and provide input to FDOT officials.
