JEA Headquarters – Downtown
Chilled Water Project

A contractor working for JEA (TB Landmark) will soon be installing chilled water mains along W. Duval Street, N. Julia Street and E. Monroe Street that will serve the new JEA headquarters and provide future connections for the City of Jacksonville’s Ed Ball Building and Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Department (JFRD) headquarters.

Construction will primarily occur in the City of Jacksonville rights-of-way, roads and easements. For the safety of our crews and the general public, the contractor will be required to temporarily close and detour each individual street while the chilled water mains are being installed. The project work area (W. Monroe Street between N. Pearl Street and N. Julia Street) will remain closed (24/7) until completion. Estimated Completion Date: February 2022*

Sidewalks in the area will remain open. Please observe all construction signs, detours and general directions provided by the crews working on site.

During the first phase of construction, W. Duval Street between N. Julia Street and N. Pearl Street will be temporarily closed. Please see the work area and detour map below.

Anticipated Start Date: July 19, 2021*
Estimated Completion Date: September 17, 2021*
*Dates are highly subject to change.
