The new interchange will allow for easier access to JaxPort's Talleyrand terminal and will improve safety along the MLK Parkway. Traffic will exit MLK Parkway. at Phoenix Avenue and directly connect with ramps to the port via 21 Street. Traffic leaving the port will be able to travel to MLK Parkway from 21 Street.
