JEA Headquarters

Downtown Chilled Water Project

JEA is continuing its work to install new chilled water lines that will serve the new JEA Headquarters. To complete the connection to the existing chilled water system, JEA must temporarily interrupt chilled water service to the Main Public Library and the Jake Godbold Building (Public Defender’s Office). To maintain service to these buildings, JEA will be installing temporary “chillers” and service lines on W. Duval Street.

For the safety of crews and the general public, JEA will be required to temporarily close and detour traffic around W. Duval Street from N. Main Street to N. Laura Street while the work is completed. Please see the work area and detour map below.

This work will not impact the normal operations of the electric, water or sewer service for these buildings. Please observe all construction signs, detours, and general directions provided by the crews working on-site. Drivers are encouraged to take alternate routes when available and plan ahead for minor traffic delays. The City’s Main Library Parking lot on W. Duval Street will remain open. Please use extreme caution entering and exiting the garage.

Start Date: Thursday, November 11, 2021*
Estimated Completion Date: Wednesday, November 24, 2021*

*Dates are weather permitting and highly subject to change.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact JEA Project Outreach at (904) 665-7500 or
