ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – Race Track Road, east of Bartram Park Boulevard to just east of the State Road 9B construction site in St. Johns County, will be closed and a detour will be in place from 9 p.m. Thursday until 6 a.m. Friday.
The work, weather permitting, is for the placement of the bridge deck for the new State Road 9B Race Track Road overpass.
Eastbound Race Track Road traffic will detour to Bartram Park Boulevard, Old St. Augustine Road and U.S. 1/Philips Highway. Westbound traffic will detour to U.S.1/Philips Highway, Old St. Augustine Road and Bartram Park Boulevard.
The new four-lane divided highway will connect I-95 to St. Johns Parkway/County Road 2209 in St. Johns County.
The project includes overpasses at Race Track Road, Durbin Creek and Russell Sampson Road and a connector road (Peyton Parkway) from Race Track Road to State Road 9B.
The connector road will provide direct access to State Road 9B.
The 2.3 mile extension into St. Johns County is the third segment of State Road 9B that began in 2010 with the I-295 to U.S. 1 segment.
The second segment, from U.S. 1 to I-95, was complete in July.
The final segment of State Road 9B began in August, 2015 and is scheduled for completion in spring 2018.
