JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Motorists traveling from westbound Butler Boulevard (JTB) to southbound I-95 will begin using a new ramp Friday morning.

The new ramp will guide motorists to a new overpass merging onto southbound I-95. 

The shift will begin Thursday night to open the ramp for motorists Friday morning. The shift is part of the Florida Department of Transportation’s (FDOT) I-95 and JTB Interchange Improvement Project.

A second shift is tentatively scheduled Jan. 28. Motorists traveling southbound I-95 will shift to the right just north of JTB and continue over a newly constructed overpass over JTB. The exit ramp to JTB (Exit 344) remains open.

The traffic shifts will enable construction crews to remove the existing structure so they can begin building a new overpass on southbound I-95 over Butler Boulevard. 

Motorists are encouraged to watch for changing traffic patterns.

Up-to-date lane closure information is available on the project website at www.nflroads.com/95andbutler. A project hotline number has been established to assist the public with questions and concerns: 904-491-2133.
