Project Overview
The First Coast Expressway is a multi-lane limited access toll facility that will eventually connect I-95 in northern St. Johns County to I-10 in western Duval County. The northern section from Blanding Boulevard (SR 21) in Clay County to I-10 in Duval County is currently under construction and is scheduled for completion in Summer 2016. Construction is also underway on the First Coast Expressway extension from I-10 to Beaver Street (US 90) and is estimated for completion in Spring 2018.
