Jacksonville Landmark Set To Come Down

A landmark is being torn down, along with a few trees, to make way for a more beautiful entry into Jacksonville.

Fisherman's Wharf Restaurant, a fixture on the New River, is set to be torn down.

It's been closed for a while and the owner volunteered to pay for the demolition as part of the revitalization effort.

Jacksonville's City Manager Richard Woodruff says trees came down on the other side of the bridge Monday. Woodruff says it's part of the new Landing Project, after federal officials gave final permitting for construction and dredging between the Popkin and Phillips Bridges.

The Landing will have a hundred parking spaces: 60 for vehicles with trailers, three boat ramps, two docks, handicapped canoe and kayak launches, and a visitor's center.

It's expected to be completed by September.
