Vehicular road closures planned; pedestrian access to remain open


Starting on Monday, August 7, Spanish Street will undergo construction as part of the  Historic Streetscape Rehabilitation plan. The project is expected to last approximately eight months, during which certain road closures will be in effect: 

  • Spanish Street, from Cuna Street to Orange Street, will be closed to vehicular traffic
  • Tolomato Lane, from Spanish Street to Cordova Street, will be closed to vehicular traffic
  • Cuna Street will be one-way Westbound 
  • Pedestrian access will be fully maintained to residences at the Tolomato Lot
  • A dedicated pedestrian crossing will be operational at Tolomato Lane and Spanish Street 

The City understands that this project impacts the daily routine of residents and businesses and will work with everyone affected. As an opportunity to meet with City staff and directly ask questions about the project, the City will host an open house on Wednesday, August 2, from 5:00pm to 6:30pm at the Financial Services Center, located at 50 Bridge Street.

"We are excited to continue this initiative on Spanish Street, preserving our City's heritage while enhancing functionality and accessibility,” said Reuben Franklin, Assistant City Manager. “As we take this step forward, we remain committed to working closely with our community, understanding the impact on residents and businesses, and ensuring that this project becomes a source of pride for all those who call St. Augustine their home." 

This construction continues the City’s ‘complete streets’ initiative, which rehabilitates historic areas for functionality and safety of vehicles, pedestrians, and bicycles, and provides ADA access, all while maintaining the rich historic heritage of the area.  The Hypolita and Treasury 'complete streets' initiative has been successful in blending historical authenticity with modern accessibility, and the Spanish Street rehabilitation is the next step in this plan.

For more information about this project or to discuss access / delivery coordination concerns, contact Xavier Pellicer, Mobility Manager, at 904-209-4211.
