Dames Point Bridge

Opening on March 10, 1989, the 10,646 foot long, 174 foot high Dames Point Bridge connected Arlington, the beaches, and Southside with the Northside of the city. We may take it for granted unless the bridge is closed because of an accident, but this 25th birthday celebrating bridge saves about 70,000 cars and trucks from having to drive many extra miles and cross one of the downtown bridges every single day.

Automotive Addicts is also the founder of the Jacksonville Cars and Coffee event, hosting the monthly car show on the second Saturday of every month. The car show began at the St. John’s Town Center a little over five years ago, moving to the River City Shopping Center, Tinseltown, and finally back to the original location at the St. John’s Town Center. All locales had there pros, but none of them felt like home for the event.

In April of 2013, the Florida Times-Union approached the AutomotiveAddicts.com team and asked if they would consider hosting the event downtown at The Florida Times-Union headquarters at 1 Riverside Avenue. The location was ideal, central to the city, right on the waterfront and included a large covered parking area to accommodate the event in case of rain.

AutomotiveAddicts hosted the first Cars and Coffee at the Florida Times-Union on July 13, 2013. The new location was widely received by the Jacksonville car community. In a short amount of time the show began regularly attracting 400 plus cars and thousands of spectators, AutomotiveAddicts.com Cars and Coffee had found a home and solidified itself as one of Jacksonville’s premier car gatherings.
