JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Another implosion in Jacksonville is scheduled for next month, JEA announced Wednesday. 

It's set for 8 a.m. Friday, April 12, at the St. Johns River Power Park on the city's Northside, where the two cooling towers were imploded in June.

This time, the selective catalytic reactors will be imploded as part of the next phase of JEA's plan to permanently decommission the Power Park. 

No roads are scheduled to close, but people who live nearby may hear loud noises. 

According to JEA, the boilers will not be imploded on April 12. The date for that has yet to be determined.
