Jacksonville Transit Authority's vision of a regional multi-modal hub is coming to a reality with the Jacksonville Regional Transportation Center (JRTC). The JRTC will be a multi-modal hub, located in the heart of the Downtown LaVilla area, that will integrate key local, regional and intercity service in one location. A key benefit includes improved connectivity between modes including local bus, BRT and Skyway; regional bus and future commuter rail service; and intercity bus and passenger rail service. In Phase II of the project, Big Span Structures was contracted recently to provide a design-build tensile membrane structure to provide protection from the sun and weather elements on a connecting pedestrian walkway bridge over W. Forsyth Street. The 2,725 sq.ft. tensile canopy system will feature white PVC membrane and v-shaped steel elements on the side column areas.
