Brown Corridor


The Brown Corridor begins at the proposed Branan Field-Chaffee Road / Blanding Blvd. interchange in Clay County and heads in a southeasterly direction towards Black Creek. After crossing Black Creek, the Brown Corridor proceeds in a southeasterly direction, crossing the proposed CR 224 and CR 739B in Clay County. After crossing CR 739B, the Brown Corridor heads in a southerly direction towards SR 16, crossing the proposed CR 218 Bypass. The first local access interchange would be provided at the CR 218 Bypass, approximately 3 miles north of SR 16. The corridor continues south, staying west of Peters Creek, crossing an existing power line easement before intersecting with SR 16. A local access interchange will be provided at SR 16, located west of Peters Creek and east of Pier Station. 

After crossing SR 16, the corridor continues in a southeasterly direction, paralleling the power line easement on the western side. East of CR 315, the corridor takes an east to northeasterly direction, heading towards the southern area of Green Cove Springs. The corridor intersects US 17 south of Green Cove Springs just north of the existing US 17 railroad overpass. A local access interchange is proposed at US 17 at this location.

After crossing US 17, the Brown Corridor heads east towards the existing Shands Bridge just south of the Reynolds Industrial Park. The corridor then overpasses SR 16 and co-locates with SR 16 at the west end of the Shands Bridge. The corridor again passes over SR16 following the existing Shands Bridge alignment, paralleling the bridge on the south side across the St. Johns River.

Just east of SR 13, the corridor proceeds in a northerly direction toward the SR 9B Extension. The corridor intersects CR 16A west of Trout Creek where a local access interchange is proposed. The corridor continues north where it intersects CR 210 just east of the Greenbriar Road extension. Another local access interchange is proposed at this intersection. The alignment proceeds north across CR 210 then turns due east along the Durbin Crossing DRI right-of-way reservation to its intersection with CR 2209, joining the facility with the southerly extension of SR 9B, completing the corridor.
