After the vote was taken, JTA ..., 21 Dec 2009 [cached]
After the vote was taken, JTA Director of Resource Development Steven Arrington said receiving final approval on the design was a major step for the project that has been in development since 1992.
Arrington also said scheduling a groundbreaking ceremony for the first phase is contingent on securing a $63 million federal Transportation Improvement Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) grant, which is part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.

But JTA engineering director Steve Arrington said Wonderwood's $110 million budget is "tight" and can't spare money for bonuses because that might leave the JTA short-changed for completing the project.
"You've got a bucket of money and when you get to the bottom of the bucket, you're out of money," Arrington said.
The Wonderwood Connector project will create a four-lane road from Mayport Road to Florida 9A, providing another east-west route from the Beaches.Wonderwood is part of a network of other road projects -- including the widened Monument Road and a future link from Monument Road to the Southside Connector with interchanges to the Arlington Expressway -- that will speed up traffic flow through Arlington.
The JTA is building the 8.7-mile Wonderwood Connector in four phases.It has completed the segment from Mayport Road to Florida A1A.Last year, the JTA began the piece from Florida A1A to Girvin Road, which includes a new bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway.
Arrington said buying right of way has taken longer than expected in order to comply with regulations attached to federal funding for the project.
The Monument Road project originally was slated to finish by March 2001, but the completion date was pushed back to Sept. 10, 2001, because JEA, which provides utility service in most of Jacksonville, asked during construction to install a large sewer line under Monument Road.

"Our project is essentially shovel-ready, with very limited real estate," said Steve Arrington, JTA director of resource development. The current plan has been on the books since early 2008.
The existing Prime Osborn could function as a train station when it's not being used for conventions or other events, Arrington said, although he said exactly how that would work hasn't been determined.
Without stimulus funding, JTA will probably take a piecemeal approach of getting different funding over several years, Arrington said.
Meanwhile, he and others are trying to sell the transportation center as an urban growth hub that could encourage restaurants, businesses and people to move into the downtown area, creating more than the 25 jobs that would result from the first phase.
Arrington said cities such as Charlotte and Memphis built transportation centers similar to what JTA wants and retail businesses followed.
Arrington blames the ridership drop on the recession and thinks the primary problem with the Skyway is that there's no good way for people to access it. More downtown development, and a transportation network that drops people off at the Skyway, would increase ridership, he said.
"In most cities, people take a commuter train to a bus or subway," Arrington said.

Each ride costs $2, or $1 per person age 60 and up, said Steve Arrington, the JTA's director of strategic planning.Most important, it is designed to offer people a "different kind of service where people have these needs and have a difficult time to get to our bus routes," Arrington said.
"We are trying to serve everyone the best we can, but it is set up to get people to jobs in that zoned area.In addition, these routes all meet with a fixed-route bus line -- this one meets at the Marbon Park and Ride," he said.
Arrington said the JTA has informed businesses in the service area about the ride request system, which currently offers only one van.Ridership has averaged about 13 to 14 people per day, but rose about 23 per day a week ago.The JTA plans to advertise the fledgling service more widely, including a direct mail campaign in the service area.
"You call in, and most likely you will be scheduled when you want unless there are conflicts.There is a time arranged that the bus, which is wheelchair-equipped, will come to the curb in front of your house," Arrington said.
