Baldwin Bypass
Overview

The Baldwin Bypass project includes constructing a new four-mile, four-lane divided highway beginning north of the I-10 westbound on-ramp and two new signalized intersections at Beaver Street (U.S. 90) and Brandy Branch Road. Plans also include building an overpass across two CSX railroad crossings and an additional overpass over the Jacksonville-Baldwin Rail Trail to alleviate traffic congestion and improve operational efficiency of U.S. 301, which is part of the National Highway System and Florida’s Strategic Intermodal System (SIS).

Beginning Wednesday, July 8, motorists will see a new signalized intersection at U.S. 301 and New Brandy Branch Road. Drivers who wish to continue traveling south on U.S. 301 will now turn left at the signalized intersection. Once the Baldwin Bypass construction is complete, southbound traffic will turn right and use the connector to travel north on the bypass.

The bypass opened to traffic Sunday, September 13. Drivers traveling north from the I-10 bridge will now stop at the new signalized intersection at Brandy Branch Road and continue north to the old U.S. 301 lanes through the Town of Baldwin or continue north on the newly constructed State Road 201/Baldwin Bypass to existing U.S. 301. The new south connector of State Road 201/Baldwin Bypass is also open to traffic.

Motorists are encouraged to adhere to posted regulatory signs and stay alert while driving through active construction zones.

An open house was held Monday, January 9, 2017. Topics discussed included timeframe, construction activities, traffic impacts and other details.

Superior Construction Company was selected to complete the $60 million project.
