One of the fastest growing counties in Florida is being fueled by the construction of the First Coast Expressway.

The Florida Dept. of Transportation has committed $1.9B to construct the First Coast Expressway. When complete, the expressway will connect I-10 in Duval County to I-95 in St. Johns County, passing directly through the heart of Clay County. The project includes a new 4-lane Shands bridge with a 65' height restriction. Seven new interchanges are being constructed in Clay County and driving tremendous development activity.
