JRTC Skyway

Membrane: PVC
Market Sector: Transportation
Project Size: 2,725 sqft
Architect: Michael Baker International
Owner: Jacksonville Transportation Authority
Completion Date: May 2020

Jacksonville Transit Authority’s vision of a regional multi-modal hub is becoming 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 services 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 sqft tensile canopy system will feature a white PVC membrane and v-shaped steel elements on the side column areas.
