First Coast Expressway from State Road 21 to North of State Road 16

Overview

Sacyr Construction began construction March 4, 2019 on the second phase of the First Coast Expressway (State Road 23) from north of State Road 16 to just north of Blanding Boulevard (State Road 21) through Clay County (10.5 miles)

Construction activities include:

  • Adding 10.5 miles of new multi-lane, limited access toll roadway to State Road 23
  • Constructing a drainage system for the new roadway with a series of storm water ponds
  • Installing new lighting, highway signing and guardrails
  • Building three new tolling facilities with overhead gantries and electronic tolling east of Baxley Road, west of the County Road 218 exit and just west of the State Road 16 exit
  • Building 26 bridges along the roadway, including two new bridges over Black Creek in the Lake Asbury community
  • Building noise walls south of Sandridge Road in the Rolling Hills Community
  • Constructing retaining walls along State Road 23

Traffic impacts:

  • Due to active sidewalks in the area, the contractor will be required to make necessary accommodations for pedestrians and physically handicapped during construction
  • Sacyr Construction will construct temporary access points at State Road 16 and State Road 21
