Transportation Improvement Program that Creates Jobs


The Jacksonville Transportation Authority’s (JTA) MobilityWorks 2.0 program is comprised of 17 projects funded by the extension of the Local Option Gas Tax (LOGT). MobilityWorks 2.0 will invest $490 million dollars in the community over the next 30 years and generate an estimated 1,600 direct jobs. The projects vary in scope from trails that connect neighborhoods, the purchase of a new ferry vessel and docking facilities construction, bus stop improvements to roadway and transit enhancements throughout the city.

The LOGT ordinance approved in May 2021 shaped the project list for MobilityWorks 2.0. These projects target transit, pedestrian, cycling, and safety improvements in Duval County. Community input will be collected through charrettes and community outreach, focusing on aspects such as sidewalks and crosswalks, bike paths, transit accessibility, lighting, bus shelters, landscaping, and more.

Planning and design for MobilityWorks 2.0 projects began in 2022 with construction efforts beginning in 2023. The projects will be constructed over the next 30 years, with project completion anticipated by 2052. The dashboard provides a detailed look at jobs created and expenditures to date.

JTA is an independent state agency with multi-modal responsibilities serving Duval County. JTA designs and constructs bridges and highways and provides varied mass transit services. JTA’s vision is for a thriving and connected Northeast Florida powered by seamless mobility solutions for all.

First Local Option Gas Tax

The City of Jacksonville enacted a 6-cent Local Option Gas Tax (LOGT) for a 10-year period. In 1991 it was extended for an additional 20-year period through 2016.

Better Jacksonville Plan

The Better Jacksonville Plan (BJP) is $2.25 billion comprehensive growth management program that provides road and infrastructure improvements, environmental preservation, targeted economic development and new and improved public facilities. It is funded in part by a half-cent sales tax approved by Duval County voters, which will sunset no later than 2030.

Better Jacksonville Plan Revisions

The City of Jacksonville and JTA re-evaluated the original BJP road and infrastructure work program due to increases in costs, changes in traffic patterns and community feedback. Projects were added, deleted, reduced or expanded, as well as prioritized for available funding.

LOGT Extension

Jacksonville’s City Council approved a 20-year extension of the six-cent LOGT until 2036. A new project list including unfinished BJP projects was requested as part of the extension.

MobilityWorks 1.0

The City of Jacksonville and the JTA entered into an agreement to develop, schedule, finance, plan, permit, design, construct, and implement projects funded by the LOGT extension. The JTA established the MobilityWorks 1.0 program as part of this agreement.

The JTA Commits

The JTA Board of Directors reiterated its partnership with the City in completing MobilityWorks 1.0 projects and committed to completing all projects within ten years (by January 2026).

Jobs for Jax

Jobs for Jax is a transportation improvement program developed in partnership by the City of Jacksonville and JTA that includes 72 projects focused on roadway and drainage needs that fully leverage the 12-cent LOGT. An additional six cent LOGT was approved for 2022-2052 and the existing 6-cent LOGT was extended for 10 years from 2036 to 2046.
