Pink Corridor (Preferred)


The Pink 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 Pink Corridor proceeds in a southeasterly direction, crossing the proposed CR 224 and CR 739B in Clay County. After crossing CR 739B, the Pink 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 CR 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 Pink Corridor heads east towards the existing Shands Bridge just south of the Reynolds Industrial Park. The corridor then follows the existing Shands Bridge alignment, paralleling the bridge on the south side across the St. Johns River.

Upon entering St. Johns County, the corridor crosses SR 13 and proceeds in a northeasterly direction. The corridor turns east, paralleling CR 16A and intersecting with proposed CR 244, where a local access interchange would be located. Continuing eastward, the corridor intersects the planned CR 2209 and at I-95 with interchanges at both of these locations. The corridor would require the 8-laning of I-95 from its intersection with I-95, north to the proposed 9B extension.
