JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – People heading out for Christmas shopping can expect to see some delays. As of 2:40 p.m. traffic is moving slowly at Gate Parkway because of an accident. Users on the Waze app report traffic is moving at 5 miles per hour. Valet parking is always an option at The Town Center.
The Avenues Mall couldn't be reached for comment about parking situations there. A look on the DOT Traffic camera shows more traffic than usual for a Saturday on I-95 at Baymeadows which is a road that leads to the mall.
Shoppers at Walmart on Beach and Hodges say they don't mind the hustle and bustle. Most of the last-minute shoppers have the attitude that prices will drop right before the holiday.
