Starke Truck Route

Overview

Work began in August 2016 on a 7.3-mile long, four-lane truck route designed to relieve some of the congestion on U.S. 301 in Starke.

The approximately $90 million project will be constructed between County Road 227 and County Road 233 on the west side of Starke. The new roadway will consist of two travel lanes in each direction, and overpasses will be constructed over County Road 100A, the CSX Railroad, and County Road 229. Interchanges will be constructed along the new roadway to provide access to State Road 100 and State Road 16.

The new roadway will provide an alternate route for freight-carrying trucks, and will help alleviate some of the traffic congestion on U.S. 301 through downtown Starke.

In addition to relieving congestion on the busy U.S. 301 corridor, it is expected to provide additional capacity for future traffic growth. The new route is projected to carry more than 25,000 vehicles per day by 2020, and increase to more than 31,000 per day by 2040.

Construction on the new truck route should not affect travel in and around Starke.

Superior Construction and Anderson Columbia Co., Inc., of Lake City, has been hired by FDOT to complete the work.
