Brickbats & Bouquets

The organization which provides donor services, philanthropic guidance and civic leadership to the local area was recognized for its excellence in partnerships which have transformed the relationships between the public and philanthropic sectors.


Brick Bat:

To Archer Western, contractor for the I-295 and Airport Road/I-95 Project, officially known as the I-295 North Interchange Operational Improvements Project. Construction on the $177 million project started in 2016 and was expected to be completed by early 2023, but according to FDOT’s website, it’s not scheduled to open until Spring 2024. Definitely not the news residents of North Jacksonville and travelers in the area wanted to hear.
