Purple Corridor


The Purple 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 Purple Corridor proceeds in a southeasterly direction towards Green Cove Springs and turns east towards the St. Johns River after crossing CR 315. Two local access interchanges would be provided in Clay County prior to crossing the St. Johns River. The first interchange would be located at a future planned highway in Clay County known as the College Drive extension. The College Drive extension begins at the intersection of Henley Road and CR 209 and extends directly south to SR 16, terminating just west of the Pier Station neighborhood. The interchange for this facility would be approximately mile north of CR 739B. The second interchange for the Purple Corridor would be located at US 17 north of CR 315, servicing Green Cove Springs to the south and the Fleming Island area to the north.

The corridor continues east, crossing the St. Johns River at a location north of Green Cove Springs and proceeds directly east into St. Johns County. Upon entering St. Johns County, the corridor overpasses SR 13, north of Popo Point, and heads northeasterly toward the proposed 9B extension. The first local access interchange in St. Johns County would be at Greenbriar Road, west of Roberts Road. 

The corridor continues east, following an existing right-of-way reservation secured as part of the Durbin Crossing DRI. The final local access interchange for the Purple Corridor would be located at the intersection of the proposed 9B extension and CR 2209. This would provide for a continuous limited access highway into southern Duval, northern St. Johns County.
