Jacksonville Area Highway Work Reaches an Unprecedented High

The Florida Times-Union reports, “It is like a gift that keeps on giving for local commuters — the avalanche of road projects in Jacksonville as well as routes in and out of Clay, St. Johns and Nassau counties that promise traffic relief in the future, but bring the crunch of traffic jams, detours and lane closures right now.” The newspaper says, “A check of Florida Department of Transportation projects in Jacksonville at northfloridaroads.com shows 31 projects under construction, five of them focused on different parts of Interstate 95. . . .” The project to widen the I-295 loop and add managed lanes between Baymeadows Road and Gate Parkway gets particular attention in the article.
