And that's exactly what a new project targets- Channel 4's Erica Rakow explains what changes are in store for some of Jacksonville's busiest roadways. 3 It's one of the heaviest traveled areas of Jacksonville ... I-95 and J. turner butler boulevard. And before too long, it will be much easier to drive through. Last night...the Florida Department of transportation had a meeting to discuss the latest designs for a 78 million dollar project. It includes 3 major improvements and is expected to alleviate a lot of congestion on I-95 and JTB... The first is southbound to I-95. Traffic that currently has to pass through a light to head out towards the beach will go to an elevated flyover, so there will be no stopping. The second is the same improvements, but in reverse -- a flyover ramp connecting drivers from the beach to I-95 without having to weave across traffic. The third improvement is northbound. Traffic getting off at JTB that desires to go west towards US 1 currently has to go east and do a U-turn at Belfort Rd. and then come back. A traffic signal will be installed so drivers can make a left directly at the end of the ramp. DOT Officials say the project will ease a lot of headaches. 3 3 3 44:20 the overall project is going to help out traffic much more efficiently.it's better for the community, it's better for the commuters who are trying to come through. it's better for the economics here in our distirct so it's a fantastic project to help address a serious operational issue." 3 Construction for the project is expected to begin in the fall of next year.
