This year will see the culmination of several major Florida Department of Transportation projects, including the Overland Bridge and construction at the intersection of I-95 and J. Turner Butler Boulevard. The first quarter will also have construction at I-95 and I-295 near the airport to ease the area’s logistics industry.

Another big project in the first quarter with be improvements to the I-95 and I-10 interchange, said FDOT spokesman Ron Tittle.

Additionally, work on the First Coast Expressway will continue, and Northeast Florida will start construction this month on the diverging diamond interchange at I-95 and A1A in Nassau County.

“People get construction fatigue,” Tittle said. “But there is $1 billion in active construction in the area. It drives the economy and it’s adding capacity and encouraging people to come to the area. In the short term, it’s an inconvenience that’s providing long-term solutions. We have to stay up with the tempo and be prepared and build capacity in our system.”
