First Coast Expressway

The First Coast Expressway is a new multi-lane limited access toll facility that will eventually connect Interstate 95 (I-95) in northern St. Johns County to Interstate 10 (I-10) in western Duval County. The northern section from SR 21 (Blanding Blvd) in Clay County to I-10 in Duval County is currently under construction and is scheduled for completion late 2017. The project includes a new bridge over the St. Johns River that will mirror the height restriction of the Buckman Bridge.
